It’s competition time!

It’s competition time!


In a bid to get our children's perspectives on the big issues, the EU is running contests with a chance to win great prizes.

Good at drawing? Fancy yourself as a linguist? Or maybe photography is more your thing? Step up and have a go at the EU's latest round of competitions for young people.

By doing so, you can do your bit to promote big issues like healthy eating, language learning, breaking down stereotypes and saving the planet. And the EU will make it worth your while, offering prizes such as digital cameras, group invitations to Brussels and cash up to €3000.

A whole raft of competitions - aimed at both children and adults - are announced on the EU's new Prizes and competitions web page. You can't win if you don't enter!

The European diversity photo competition is looking for images to use as part of a campaign against discrimination. If you win, you'll see your work on posters and flyers across Europe and could walk home with prizes of up to €3000. You'll be popular with your school too, since the EU will also give €3000 to the overall winner's school or college.

And for those who know we are what we eat, the MiniChefs poster competition could be the one for you. Winning posters will make up part of the display on European healthy food day on 8 November, when some 4000 chefs will be setting up restaurants in schools and inviting kids into their own restaurants for cooking lessons.

If you are care about the environment, you can help out ManagEnergy by coming up with images of sustainable energy use. That could be pictures of environment-friendly transport or the energy-saving buildings of the future.

And if you are a budding linguist, then don't miss the Juvenes Translatores competition. The EU is asking 17 year olds to translate a short text, with the winners to be invited to Brussels where multilingualism commissioner Leonard Orban will present them with a certificate of linguistic excellence.
