Put the Millennium Development Goals into Action with WSYA

The World Summit Youth Award (WSYA) invites young designers and e-Content creators to participate in an international competition. Sought-after are e-Contents that address in an inspiring manner the UN Millennium Development Goals, and use internet and mobile contents to create awareness of the MDGs.

An application form is now available online at www.youthaward.org. Apply for all online platforms that are led by youth under the age of 30. Projects may be submitted in the following five categories:

1. Fight Poverty, Hunger and Disease !
2. Education for all !
3. Power 2 Women !
4. Create your Culture !
5. Go Green !

The application deadline is February 30, 2009. Please note that the online platforms need not be youth-led so long as the specific project is.

An international jury of 12 experts will evaluate the projects, determining three winners for each category. Winners will be given the opportunity to showcase their platform to heads of state, business leaders and civil society at the World Summit Award (WSA) Gala and Winners Conference in June, 2009 in Monterrey, Mexico.
