USAID Global LEAD Digital Storytelling Contest 2021

Young changemakers around the world are making lasting impacts in their communities, yet their efforts are too often underestimated. We want to change that. USAID’s Global Leadership and Education Advancing Development (Global LEAD) Initiative, YouthPower2: Learning and Evaluation (YP2LE), and Generation Unlimited (Gen U), along with other global partners have joined forces for this digital storytelling contest to show how youth are using the power of change to make the world a better place.

Submit an original, three-minute video or slideshow in Arabic, English, French, or Spanish that tells the story of your youth-led actions to advance local, national, or global development and meets the contest requirements. The story you tell can be personal, that of a group of young changemakers, or that of a youth-led organization.

While any type of development activity would be acceptable, special attention will be given to those stories that link their work to advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and/or the following key issues:

  • COVID-19/Pandemic Response,
  • Education/Skills Development,
  • Youth Employment/Entrepreneurship,
  • Climate Action,
  • Food Security/Resilience,
  • Digital Literacy/Security/Action,
  • Civic Engagement, and
  • Wellness/Violence Reduction.
