UNITED FOR GIRLS: INNOVATE TO ELEVATE PRIZE



OVERVIEW OF OPPORTUNITY


The U.S. Soccer Foundation is committed to transforming the soccer landscape to achieve gender equity. Although COVID-19 punted us out of bounds, we have an opportunity to rebuild the field to reflect inclusivity - of all genders, of all races and ethnicities, and of all socio-economic backgrounds. We know that girls and women in underserved communities were among the hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are looking for change agents committed to increasing access to sport during the 2022 calendar year - focused on the spring, summer, and fall seasons. 

 

Building on the successes of our United for Girls initiative, we are releasing an ‘Innovate to Elevate’ prize. The United for Girls initiative has identified six key strategies to engage girls and women from underserved communities in sport - and we want to hear from you, the pioneers, the trail blazers, and the change agents - to expand on this work. Complete the form below to enter a proposal to test or scale an innovative tactic tied to the strategies by November 20th for a chance to win a $5,000 prize!
