USAID logo

Do you have ideas about how to creatively use technology to increase young people’s knowledge around issues that impact them? The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking young persons between the ages of 10 and 29 to participate in its Youth Well-Being Prize Competition. This initiative will award innovative solutions for protecting young people’s well-being and keeping them safe. The competition is administered by the USAID's Inclusive Development Hub's Children, Youth, and Families Team.

Innovative solutions should recognize the diverse identities of young people in the areas of mental health, digital harm, safeguarding, gender-based violence, and climate change.

First, second, and third place winners across five categories will win $5,000, $3,000, and $2,000, respectively.

Applications are due by 5 p.m. ET on September 29, 2023.
