Today is the last day you can vote for your favorites in the Sport for Change contest finalists run by Nike and Ashoka. This post contains links to the finalists, as well as some social media they’ve shared with the world.
To recap – The title of the contest: “GameChangers: Change the Game for Women in Sport”.
Ashoka’s Changemakers and Nike continue their partnership to identify, inspire and bring together the next wave of innovators eager to change the game for women in sport. Between November 12, 2008 and February 25, 2009, individuals from around the world came together to propose a ways to leverage sport for positive social change in the lives of girls and women.
What a cool idea – I have to give Ashoka the credit on this one – their idea of “open sourcing social solutions” is – for sure – the way to go. By leveraging this contest, they’ve built a tribe of advocates who have not only learned from each other, but were able to spread stories – stories that can be heard around the world.
Here are the finalists – excellent selections. Because I LOVE videos and pictures, I promoted those available below.
