The Dove Self-Esteem Project Competition supports schools UK-wide, in creating a positive and purposeful campaign around the issues of body confidence and self-esteem. With thanks to Dove, young people and school groups across the UK, now have the chance to be awarded up to £750 to turn their ideas into action.

Open to students aged 13-18 years old across the UK, the Dove Self-Esteem Project Competition invites students to submit an application demonstrating how they want to take action on an issue relating to body image and self-esteem. Successful applicants will each be awarded up to £750 to use towards their initiative.

Body image and self-esteem initiatives can include but are not limited to: fundraising campaigns, awareness-raising campaigns, attitude changing initiatives, and design ideas that solve a problem related to body image and self-esteem.

Successful applicants will win a grant of up to £750 as well as the opportunity to attend WE Day UK 2020.

Students may apply as a group or as an individual and can submit their own applications, but they must have the support of a lead teacher at their school. Teachers may apply on behalf of a student, group or school.

Applications close on Friday 20 December 2019. Successful applicants will be contacted by Monday 20 January 2020.
