This annual Guardian’s initiative is designed to reward the enterprising spirits of girls ages 12 to 18. Now in its 10th year, Guardian awards prizes to 15 girls who demonstrate budding entrepreneurship, are taking the first steps toward financial independence, and make a difference in their schools and communities. Every year, prizes totaling $30,000 are granted to three top winners and 12 finalists each year, to further their entrepreneurial pursuits or save for college.
