It is with great excitement that we announce to you today the end of the nomination and voting period of the Young Visionaries contest!
Over 70 amazing nominees from 27 different countries entered our Young Visionaries contest–it was so hard to make the final picks. Each and every one of the nominations was inspiring, and I’ve never been more certain of the potential that young people have to change the world. If you want to browse through them all, you can have a look here.
We’ve included the top ten finalists below. Five finalists were selected by popular vote and the other five were selected by the Communications Team at IWHC according to the criteria outlined in our contest rules.
Now, it’s up to our panel of five esteemed judges. Look for the winner on this site the week of April 5th.
