The GirlBoss Awards is a nationwide search for trailblazing young women (ages 11–18) who are defying stereotypes and creating change in their communities. We celebrate inspiring young leaders, facilitators, role models, and innovators.

"What these winners lack in age they make up for in courage and heart. Every one of them has stood up on behalf of others to make our country a better place." 

- Alexia Hilbertidou, CEO, GirlBoss New Zealand.
