Are you a young changemaker between the ages of 18 and 35? If so, we want to see the impact you are having on your community! The #WatchOurImpact Global LEAD Digital Storytelling Contest begins on June 7th hosted by YouthLead from USAID. 


Submit an original, three-minute video or slideshow in Arabic, English, French, or Spanish that tells the story of your youth-led actions to advance local, national, or global development and meets the contest requirements. The story you tell can be personal, that of a group of young changemakers, or that of a youth-led organization. 

While any type of development activity would be acceptable, special attention will be given to those stories that link their work to advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and/or the following key issues: 

  • COVID-19/Pandemic Response,
  • Education/Skills Development,
  • Youth Employment/Entrepreneurship,
  • Climate Action, 
  • Food Security/Resilience, 
  • Digital Literacy/Security/Action,
  • Civic Engagement, and 
  • Wellness/Violence Reduction.
