About the Project Awards
Girl Up Project Awards allow anyone between the ages of 13-24 to apply for a cause they are passionate about and receive funding up to $1,000 USD to make that vision a reality. Projects are not limited to a certain topic (they can be in any category) and can also include events a Club is attempting to put on in their community. If you have an amazing project idea or event in mind and need funding to support that reality, the Project Awards are for you.
Girl Up has just announced its 2023 Class of Project Award winners (more information below)! Stay tuned for more info about the next cycle of Project Awards in 2024!
If you have general questions about our Project Award application and process, check out our PROJECT AWARD ACTION RESOURCE which includes examples of past Project Awards, past application examples, scoring review guidelines, and resources to help you come up with your project budget, planning timeline, and measurable goals. We highly recommend reviewing this resource before applying to help you put your best foot forward in the application!

Reporting Your Project Award
Upon completion of your Project in your community, you will complete the slide deck attached in the Project Award Resource and in the 2023 Project Award Resources linked here.
The template will ask you about how your project went, the impact you made in your community, what leadership skills you believe improved throughout the completion of your project, etc.
If you have been asked to present at the End of Year Awards Innovation Lab, you do not need to also complete the reporting template.
If you are not the presenting type or do not like to create presentations, we also offer video options in which you can record a video and send back to the Girl Up Team how your project went! For more information on the video option, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
