We are pleased to showcase the finalists in the fourth annual Women and Girls Opportunity Awards (WeGO Awards). This award shines a light on the innovative work being done by Opportunity's partners to empower women and girls.
The annual awards serve three purposes:
- To advance important work with cash prize awards. First place receives $10,000, second place receives $6,000, and third place receives $3,000.
- To disseminate ideas and inspiration among the industry.
- To celebrate and reward innovative programming that is making a real impact on the lives of women and girls around the world.
All Opportunity partners are invited to submit applications. Opportunity staff screens applications and puts forward semi-finalists to a panel of women volunteers, who discuss and scored each project. Voting on the finalists is open to the public.
