College Magazine’s 50by2050 campaign, an initiative to achieve 50% of women in Congress by the year 2050, partners with IGNITE to give young women the resources they need to get their name on the ballot—and then win. IGNITE’s training program teaches young women about policy and how to enact positive change through elected office while connecting them with current women leaders.
IGNITE’s Young Women Run event spans over the course of two days: June 25–26, 2018. At the event you’ll meet like-minded individuals, hear from inspirational women, connect with political leaders and learn skills that will help you on your journey towards a successful career of making an impact.
Skyhour is giving the winner up to 12 skyhours for a round trip flight to Washington D.C. With Skyhour you have the power to give flight hours, set travel goals & fly anywhere on over 350 airlines. 1 skyhour represents 1 hour of flight time.

Young Women Run features four keynote speakers that will inspire the next generation of women politicians. Who are these powerful women leaders? Congresswoman Nanette Barragan from California’s 44th Congressional district, Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal representing Washington’s 7th district, Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen from Florida’s 27th district and Congresswoman Terri Sewell representing Alabama’s 7th district. Each will speak her truth to encourage you to run.
You’ll also get to participate in four stimulating workshops. These workshops will prepare you for campaigning in a digital world where “liking” a tweet can potentially redefine your platform. Chuck Rocha, the president and founder of Solidarity Struggles, will lead “On Camera Media Training,” preparing you to deal with the media and press. “Campaign Fundraising Essentials” will highlight the importance of practical fundraising skills that will allow you to launch a successful campaign. Crystal Patterson, the Outreach Manager at Facebook, will speak at “Leveraging Facebook on your Political Campaign,” focusing on using your social media platform to help you and other young women promote political messages. And finally, Nikila Kakarla, the legal specialist at LinkedIn, will present at the “Enhance your network with LinkedIn,” a workshop that will teach you how to use LinkedIn’s 450 million users to extend your connections and refine your profile.
These workshops will give you the tools to campaign. But how will you find that internal motivation? You’ll need to pick the brain of an inspirational woman who’s already broken those barriers.
The winner of the Young Women Run 2018 giveaway will get the chance to enjoy coffee with a Congresswoman. Seek her advice and ask the questions burning on the forefront of your mind. She’ll want to see you run and succeed; consider this the ultimate mentorship opportunity. You may even want to thank her in your victory speech years down the road.
All you need to do to win this incredible experience is enter to win College Magazine’s Young Women Run 2018 giveaway.
