Girls Rule Foundation, in partnership with Arizona State University, is calling all girls for a day of education, entertainment and empowerment.
The 4th annual Shine Brightly Teens and Women Summit, is where teen girls go to dream big and build a bright future. The Summit takes place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on October 29, and is designed specifically for girls aged 12 through 18 and their moms, dads, aunts, grandmothers or mentees who support them.
After beginning the day with a photo booth and a $500 Fund Your Dream contest, attendees will then hear from inspirational speakers about hands-on tools for building and maintaining confidence, making wise choices, setting goals and funding and achieving their dreams.
The day also includes lunch, raffle prizes and access to leaders and experts to help the girls build their bright future. The Summit is also home to the Brilliant, Beautiful and Bold Role Model Award that recognizes four exceptional young girls who are making a difference in their community. Visit brilliantbeautifulandbold.com prior to October 3 to nominate someone you know who is brilliant, beautiful and bold.
