We are happy to announce that our first ever Africa We Want Youth Voices Competition has been a success. We asked young people to imagine the kind of Africa they wanted and enter in four categories: essays, short stories, poems and photos/graphics.
We received 134 individual entries from 15 countries with a total of over 200 submissions.
Right now, the submissions are being short-listed, after which they will be sent to our panel of judges for final adjudication. Winners will be announced on 16 December 2015.
We would like to extend a special thank you to our S2C Ambassadors who mobilised young people to enter.
