May 27, 2008

from the press release...

Gsf_globe_2The Asia Society and Goldman Sachs Foundation are pleased to announce the 2008 Youth Prizes for Excellence in International Education. Up to five winners will be selected to receive up to $10,000 each as well as an all-expense paid trip to New York City in November 2008 to receive their prize.

Featuring the theme "It's a Big World, What Can We Learn From Each Other?" the 2008 competition asks students to create an in-depth written essay or multimedia feature examining a social or economic issue that has relevance to them in a global context. In the essay category, students will compare and contrast how the issue affects their community and a community abroad, as well as create recommendations for what lessons the two communities could learn from each other. In the multimedia category, students will explore how a global problem or challenge affects their life as an individual, as a member of their local community, and/or as a global citizen.

Please visit http://askasia.org/students/gsfprizes.html for eligibility criteria, guidelines and helpful hints, and submission instructions. Deadline for applications is Thursday, June 12, 2008.

Good luck to all applicants!
