Independent MEP Marian Harkin has called on all eight- to 24-year-olds to “get creative and enter the EU drawing and writing competition to be in with a chance of attending the 2012 Nobel Peace prize ceremony in Oslo.”
The theme for the competition is Peace, Europe, Future: What does Peace in Europe mean to you? Children aged eight to 12 should express their answer in a drawing; young people aged 13 to 24 in a short text of maximum 120 characters, in any of the 23 EU official languages.
The contest will be open until November 25. The European Youth Forum will pre-select the 16 best entries for each age group (eight-12, 13-17, and 18-24 ). A jury will select three of the final winners (one per age group ) who will win a trip to Oslo.
Participants can take part in the contest and propose entries on: www.peaceuropefuture.eu
