UN essay competition
Essay competition: ELS Educational Services Inc. (ELS) and the United Nations Academic Impact global initiative are working together to promote multilingualism through the ‘Many Languages, One World’ essay competition and ‘Global Youth Forum’.
The goal is to promote multilingualism and the continued study of the United Nations’ six official languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. To qualify, entries must be in an official language of the United Nations that is not the entrant’s first language or language of instruction in his or her primary or secondary education.
Nominate your students to write an essay in their second language (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian or Spanish). Winners will be sponsored to participate in a Global Youth Forum scheduled to take place between June 25-29, 2014 at the United Nations in New York City.
