This is your chance to raise awareness about your cause and win prize money– $500, to be exact–for your organization. Six speakers will be selected and allocated three minutes to make a compelling case for their cause. At the end of all presentations, audience members will vote for the presenter they believe delivered the most captivating and inspirational message of social change taking place to solve an issue or problem.
