Terms and Conditions
- This competition is open to Girl Guides and Girl Scouts only who must be part of one of WAGGGS' 150 Member Organisations.
- You must be between the ages of 18 -30 by the 1 March 2021 to enter this competition.
- By entering this competition you must be free to travel for a maximum of 7 days between March and June 2021
- Exact dates will be determined by WAGGGS as soon as possible. The date and format of the event might change, given the extraordinary circumstances imposed by the Covid19 pandemic.
- If the event planned for attendance suffers any considerable change in the dates of delivery format, WAGGGS will communicate and discuss alternatives with the competition winner. WAGGGS will aim to find a solution that meets the winner expectations, including similar opportunities to represent WAGGGS' work with U-Report at another international or national event within 12 months.
- WAGGGS will provide a letter to your employer or educational institution to explain your involvement in the event. However, you must secure your own time off school or work to take part.
- The competition closes on 31 October 2020. No one you recruit after this date will count towards your total recruitment figure. #HearMeNow dialogues might take place after this date, although they need to show proof until the end of the year.
- The girls recruited to join U-Report must be between the ages of 13-25. Women above the age of 25 are welcomed in the platform. However, the recruitment numbers outside the age range of 13-25 years old won't be counted in this competition.
- To enter this competition, you must first be a U-Reporter. Send the word JOIN on U-Report Global to register.
- At the end of the registration process, you must select that you wish to receive a recruitment code by sending the word CODE when prompted. This code must be entered by the girls that you recruit to U-Report when they register through the same registration process.
- We do not accept responsibility for numbers you believe you recruited that do not use your recruitment code.
- To receive a recruitment code, you will need to provide some personal information, such as your name, e-mail address and other contact information. This information will only be accessible by WAGGGS' U-Report Manager for the purpose of identifying the winner. Your personal information will never be shared with any third party. U-Report still remains anonymous, and your information will not be stored in any database owned by either WAGGGS or UNICEF.
- You can opt-out of the system any time by messaging U-Report with the word 'QUIT' or 'EXIT'.This will also terminate your participation in the competition.
- The Girl Guide or Girl Scout who recruits the most girls, as evidenced by the number who use her recruitment code when registering as a U-Reporter, will be notified within 14 days of the closing date of the competition.
- To be eligible for this competition, the winner needs to show proof of having held an #HearMeNow dialogue. An #HearMeNow dialogue is a guided focus group discussion where girls and young women discuss and answer specific questions designed to capture their experiences. The guidelines for the #HearMeNow dialogue can be found on the #HearMeNow activity pack.
- The #HearMeNow dialogue can take place after the U-Report recruitment period, which finishes on 31 of October 2020. However, the participant needs to show proof of having held a dialogue until 31 December 2020.
- Proof of holding a #HearMeNow dialogue can be in the format of a photograph, screenshot (for virtual-based discussions) notes or audio recording.
- You are responsible for getting and keeping consent proof from all the dialogue participants in which they accept that the information shared can be used by WAGGGS. All the data is anonymous and used under strict confidentiality.
- For participants under the age of 18, you need proof of parental consent.
- Girl Guides and Girl Scouts who enter this competition must have a good reputation with their Member Organisation, who will be required to confirm they are happy for you to represent them and WAGGGS and join the WAGGGS volunteer network.
- Winners of previous U-Report competitions cannot win again and attend the General Assembly on behalf of WAGGGS.
- In order to represent WAGGGS at a global advocacy event, you must be able to communicate in English, both written and verbal.
