YOUTH EXPRESSION CONTEST
Youth Speak Up
GYI’s pilot program, an essay contest called Youth Speak Up for Poverty and Peace, opened to 10,000 middle and high school students in 2013. GYI received more than 1000 essays from youth who brought their creativity and passion to essays about promoting peace and tolerance and combatting poverty in their communities.
The 2015 GYI Expression Contest
In 2015, Global Youth Initiative will host an international expression contest that invites young changemakers from around the world to express their views through the written word, videos and photography. The competition is designed to engage the best young minds in finding solutions to poverty, terrorism, intolerance and violence against women within their own communities.
