Do the math: Girls + Education

CNN is partnering with 10x10, a global action campaign to promote girls’ education, to spread the message that educating girls in developing nations can change the world. A film, "Girl Rising," will air in spring 2013 that tells 10 girls' stories from around the globe. The organization has kicked off a photo campaign to invite people to raise awareness on why educating girls is #basicmath, and we hope you’ll take part.


Participating is easy:


1. Print the Girls + Education sign here (or make your own!)

2. Fill in the blank with what educating girls means to you

3. Snap a photo of yourself holding up the sign and upload it here (you can also join in on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #basicmath)


The best shots will be featured on 10x10’s website and may be highlighted on CNN. We look forward to seeing your photos and spreading awareness about educating girls across the world.
