CHICAGO (Feb. 7, 2017) – The U.S. Women’s National Team announced the launch of the SheBelieves Hero contest ahead of the 2017 SheBelieves Cup. The contest, which runs from Feb. 7-10, aims to find a girl between the ages of 13-17 who embodies the SheBelieves spirit.
Conceived and developed by the U.S. Women’s National Team players, SheBelieves is a movement to inspire young girls and women and encourage them to accomplish their goals and dreams, athletic or otherwise. The campaign was originally launched in the run-up to the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup but has since evolved and grown into a special bond between the team and its fans, taking its powerful message of empowerment and that of believing in yourself into communities across the nation.
Through dedication, teamwork, perseverance and success, the U.S. WNT players inspire new generations of young girls and women to be better and strive for better; they inspire them to believe.
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.
