The ‘EU NEIGHBOURS east’ project has launched a contest for young people between the ages of 18 and 26 from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. Six winners – one from each country – will get the opportunity to travel to Poland for the forthcoming Eastern Partnership Youth Forum (all expenses paid), while the runners-up will win electronic tablets.
To take part in the contest, titled #EUaroundU – Tell your story, young people must write a personal story no longer than 600 words, in English. Participants are invited to highlight the impact that the EU has had on their personal life or community. Topics can cover anything related to the EU, whether EU projects or programmes, educational exchanges, etc.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, 31st March 2017. The winners will be announced in early May 2017, ahead of the EaP Youth Forum in June.
The youth contest is being conducted in the framework of the EU-funded project ‘OPEN Neighbourhood – Communicating for a stronger partnership: connecting with citizens across the Eastern Neighbourhood’, or ‘EU NEIGHBOURS east’ project.
