Use your passions to advance social, humanitarian, medical or environmental causes.
Your ability to visually convey the essence of issues and ideas is critical to their awareness and understanding.
Tell the story visually, design signs to support marchers, illustrate written works from peers, create animations for social media, design merch for fundraisers, and more!
Your gift of creative expression can help open eyes, minds and hearts - you can move people.
Record songs for anthems, choreograph dances for social media campaigns, act in fellow teens' plays and films, and more!
Without awareness and understanding of issues, there can be no change.
Share your perspective through journalism, poetry and spoken word, storytelling, playwriting and screenwriting. We may enlist teenage performing artists and filmmakers to help bring it to life!

Your creative problem solving can change the world.
Every single challenge we face can benefit from technology that helps identify and track the root issues. And your service or program, invention, app, website or other medical, technical or scientific solution could be the one that makes all the difference.
Changemakers, Leaders and Activists
Taking action is critical to creating change. YOU are a critical part of the solution!
Submit ideas - or showcase what you've already done - to increase awareness of an issue, rally others to action, influence decision makers and voters, or raise funds for the solution.
