Information from UNESCO - Section for youth
Dear friends and colleagues,
We would like to inform you about the World Summit Youth Award (WSYA) - a competition celebrating best-practice youth projects - organised by the World Summit Award and the Youth Caucus of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS).
The WSYA is an international competition for youth-led projects aiming to bridge the content gap in the emerging Information Society. The initiative promotes best practice in e-content and technological creativity and demonstrates young people’s potential to create digital opportunities. WSYA is not only a showcase for young designers, technologists and e-content creators, but seeks to contribute to sharing knowledge, protecting the environment, reducing poverty and empowering marginalised young people.
Submissions are invited in three categories (Development, Creativity and Culture, Community Engagement) from young people under 27 years of age until September 18, 2005. An international jury will then select finalists and category winners based on the content, design, innovation & creativity, interactivity and sustainability of the projects submitted.
For all further information on the award and how to participate, please consult www.youthaward.org.
