New Zealand – “EU – What does it mean – 4U?”

Aspiring young journalists can be Ambassador for a day or win a trip to Europe if they win the competition celebrating 50 years of the EU

To mark the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome in New Zealand, aspiring young journalists from senior high school are being invited to enter a competition: “¿EU – What does it mean – 4U?”. The competition will run in the first half of 2007. 

Free teaching and learning kits will be made available to teachers who wish to incorporate the competition in their classroom activities. To take part in the competition, students must either write an article (1 500–2 500 words) or produce a podcast (2-3 minutes) portraying a creative interpretation of the competition's topic “¿EU – What does it mean – 4U?”.


Be an ambassador for a day, a journalist for another

Nine winners will be invited to a two-day Europe workshop for young journalists, to be held in Wellington at the end of June 2007. Each of the winning students will be sponsored and hosted by the head of one of the nine European missions present in the city.

Trip to Europe for two

One overall winner will win a trip to Europe (to be accompanied by a parent/guardian), with a one-week stay in Brussels and Strasbourg.

The competition is organised by the European Commission’s Delegation in New Zealand, in collaboration with the diplomatic missions present in the country: France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom.
