2017 Worldwide UNESCO Center for Peace Youth Multimedia Competition

United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, UNESCO Center for Peace invites youth around the world to take part in this year’s Multimedia Competition. Winners in each category will receive a scholarship to the 2-week Builders of the Universe camp in Maryland, USA.
UNESCO Center for Peace, the U.N. organization that brings grass roots initiatives in Education, Science, and Culture, invites youth around the world to take part in this year’s Multimedia Competition. Exceptional connectivity put youth in one of the greatest positions to bring much desired change to the world.
UNESCO’s mission is to mobilize the enthusiasm of youth to respond to an acute world problem to serve others now. Last year, motivated participants from over 65 countries submitted over 600 projects in this highly rewarding contest.

Entrants should respond in English by making a 3-5 minute multimedia production, 500-700 word written essay, art work or another means that channels a specific passion in answering the prompt. (Translations or subtitles for projects not submitted in English do not have to be perfect.)

The international crisis of the growing number and desperate situation of refugees is one of the most pressing issues facing the world today. Document how this crisis affects your life and/or offer a comprehensive, achievable solution to the problem.
