THE EU FOR THE YOUNG – Competition in writing essays.
Aiming to encourage young people to a debate about the European Union and what this integration brings to Croatia, the Delegation of the European Commission to the Republic of Croatia starts a competition in writing essays on „What does the European Union bring me/us?“
The competition is open to young people as one of the key target groups of the Communication Strategy of the Delegation of the European Commission to the Republic of Croatia. Therefore all high school and university students and young people up to 26 years of age from the Republic of Croatia can take part in that competition.
The Delegation of the European Commission considers as very important to actively include young people into the debate on the European Union, to encourage them to know the European Union and learn about it and to induce them to formulate their own role and contribution in the accession of the country to that integration and envisage the benefits membership in the EU will bring on an individual level.
The competition is opened as of today and will be published on the web portal of the Delegation of the European Commission: www.http://delhrv.ec.europa.eu
A Committee composed of experts of the Delegation of the European Commission to the Republic of Croatia will assess the quality of received essays.
The authors of the three best essays will be awarded a 500 Euro financial award on the day of the opening ceremony of the European Union Information Centre in Zagreb.
Essays written in Word in Croatian of maximum three pages (1800 characters per page) bearing personal details (name, surname, address, telephone number, age of the candidate and e-mail address) will be taken under consideration.
