Strengthening the Global Sisterhood - PowerGirls Network Global Summit

Provide a forum for teen girls (ages 14-18) to exchange ideas and explore solutions to the challenges they identify as having the greatest impact in their lives: now and in the future. A weekend event scheduled July 25-27,2008 in Atlanta, Georgia will provide a unique opportunity for girls from around the world to create their own "Power Declarations" focused on actions and policies which can influence: education, poverty, media portrayal of women, health and fitness and the environment. Additional programming will provide access to powerful female adult mentors who have navigated the landscape of profit and non-profit careers to acheive success.

In addition to the action oriented agenda, these young women will also celebrate the outstanding achievements of "The Most Powerful Girls in the World." Young women nominated for their success in Education, Community Service, Philanthropy, Innovation and Entreperneurship will be recognized and awarded College Scholarships from $1,000 to $5,000.

You are invited to nominate teen girls for attendance and awards.
