Ambassador for a Day competition

International Women’s Day 2022: Ambassador for a Day competition

Every year, we celebrate International Women’s Day on 8 March. Ambassador for a Day is a competition aimed at encouraging young women to become leaders. The British Embassy in The Hague invites all girls aged 14-17 in the Netherlands to take part. All you have to do is send in your answer, in either writing or a video, to the following question:

What do you think needs to be done to improve the position of women and girls in our society? If you were a member of the government, what steps would you take and why?

If written, your answer should be no more than 500 words long. If it is a video, it should be no longer than 120 seconds. The text/video can be in either Dutch or English. We encourage all girls to apply. It doesn’t matter where you are from or what you would like to do - we’re looking for potential!

The deadline to send in your entry is Monday 7 February 2022, 17:00. Participants should be girls aged 14-17 and resident in the Netherlands on this date.

Winners will be invited for a trip to The Hague to meet the British Ambassador to the Netherlands and other female leaders, in the first week of March (date to be confirmed).
