In September 2012, we saw a familiar face on the cover of Seventeen: Lindsay Brown, the She’s the First chapter president at the University of Notre Dame! She was selected for being a stellar student athlete for organized a tie-dye cupcake bake sale for She’s the First, which led her to visit the girls she sponsored in Nepal and then create a nonprofit to teach girls in developing countries how to play soccer and be confident on the field and in the classroom. To do all this, she had to quit the soccer team and forfeit her own academic scholarship. Pretty amazing.
It’s that time of year when Seventeen is once again on the search for its 2013 cover girl in the 3rd annual Pretty Amazing Reader Cover Contest. In this competition, Seventeen asks girls ages 15-22 who are talented, creative, and inspiring to share their story. The winner also gets a $10,000 scholarship!
Last year the spotlight was on empowering girls in the developing world. What other accomplishments can you share with Seventeen? How have you, or one of your friends, inspired others to be pretty amazing? Spread the word!
