US Soccer #SheBelieves Hero Contest
Join the SheBelieves movement to inspire and encourage young girls and women to accomplish their goals and dreams! The launch of the SheBelieves Hero Contest, ahead of the SheBelieves Cup, runs from February 7-10. It aims to find a girl between the ages of 13-17 that embodies the SheBelieves sprit.
Originally conceived and launched by the U.S. Women’s National Team in the run-up to the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup, the SheBelieves Hero Contest has created a special bond between the U.S. WNT team and its fans. The spirit of the movement embodies the message of empowerment and of believing in yourself. Spreading across the nation in small communities as well as large cities, the SheBelives stories collected from across the country inspire young girls and women to strive for the best and always believe in themselves.
A SheBelieves Hero is a leader in their community, a confident and passionate individual who empowers others around her and is working to make a difference.
