Girls' State of the Union
Girls' State of the Union is a Women's Media Center video contest that shines a light on girls as problem solvers and media leaders. Like the President's State of the Union address, the Girls' State of the Union lets girls tell us what our priorities should be. Judges for this contest include Gloria Steinem, Carol Jenkins, Kyra Sedgewick, Marisa Tomei, and an all-star list of social media leaders. The winning address will be featured at a special event at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.
