As part of the activities being undertaken to celebrate the National Girl Child Day, a nation-wide slogan writing competition amongst high school children in the age group of 14-18 years is being organized by the National Mission for Empowerment of Women under the aegis of the Ministry of Women and Child Development.

The objective of organizing this competition is to let students suggest a fresh mnemonic through the slogans for the theme "save the girl child'.

The slogan should reflect the larger concern of gender equity and empowerment of girls in a rights based approach.
