Attention Nominators!

The BBB Role Model Awards & Mentoring Program is a special way that the
Girls Rule Foundation celebrates and acknowledges girls who embody
two of our Principles: Leadership & Compassion.

What does it mean to be a Brilliant, Beautiful and Bold Role Model of Leadership & Compassion:

  • Brilliant – A girl who owns her own strengths and solves problems, fosters positive relationships, advocates for solutions, not drama, she lives for ‘we’ instead of ‘me’. She creates solutions and makes her school or community a better place through her ideas and talents. She is a role model of leadership and solutions.
  • Beautiful – A girl who listens to her beautiful heart. She often uses her time, money, voice or energy in local community involvement, volunteerism or making a difference for others in her family or school. She is a role model of kindness, compassion, and giving.
  • Bold – A girl who shows courage and bravery in her dreams, actions, choices or leadership. She is not only pursuing her dreams and goals but often helps others to succeed too. She has the boldness to take risks and has the confidence to win or lose with grace. She is a role model of bravery.
