A Young Woman Writing

KNOWLEDGE & NECKLACES

        K&N, or Knowledge and Necklaces, is a campaign that Champions of Change started to help young women reach their goals in their careers. It is composed of two major parts: a contest in which the winners are awarded scholarships and the sales of handmade pearl necklaces.

        Participants can enter the contest with an essay, video, or other media that highlight women’s rights. The top three participants will win a scholarship; the winners will be chosen by a panel of judges composed of local professors, professionals working in gender equality, as well as members of Champions of Change.

         The goal of this initiative is to raise money to support young women in our community and assist them reach their full potential by giving them the opportunities they deserve. We also hope that with the essay contest, this initiative will keep the conversations going about women’s rights in today’s society and how historic female activists have changed the world.
