The 31st Annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day is finally here! We hope that you take some time today to think about, recognize, or reflect on the great things that female athletes have done and are doing in the world.

This year’s national theme was “Expanding Opportunity” and our essay entrants demonstrated how they are working to create engagement with others through sport. With an earlier deadline this year, we saw fewer entries overall, but had some great expansion into the region. Let’s keep spreading the word!

Below is the list of winners and honorable mentions in each of the grade categories for this year. Please visit the Past Essay Contest Winners page to read the winning essays.
