Winning Influencers must prove with data how they raised awareness about ITCA and motivated peers to act as described in the contest guidelines. This is not a competition about who is personally most popular on social media, but a collective effort of grass roots mobilizing the voice and power of youth around a shared purpose. Competition winners will be announced by early April.
