ABOUT WINNING

4. How will I know if I have been shortlisted as a finalist?

We will contact you at the email address you provided with your entry.


We know it’s super difficult to wait for exciting news. It’s difficult for us too! Trust us - when the judges make their decision, we will let you know either way.

5. How should the 10 finalists from each participating country prepare for the virtual presentation to the judges?

You are required to pitch your idea creatively using a poster board, mock-up Barbie® playsets with DIY props, dress-up props and more. You’re only going to have 5 minutes to present your idea, so make the most of it!


We recommend talking about why you are passionate about your cause, how you came up with your idea, and how you think it will help others.


Remember to speak with confidence!

6. How many winners will be selected from the 10 finalists of each participating country?

Our judges will be selecting one from each participating Southeast Asian country. There will be five winners in total.

7. If I am selected as a winner, must I attend the mentorship session?

Yes please! We don’t want you to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend time with our inspiring mentors!

Our mentorships will be taking place online and are a requirement for those selected as winners. If a participant chosen is unable to make the mentorship session, they will forfeit their win to the next most qualified participant from their country.
