What is the International Young People's Peace Essay Competition?
The International Young People's Peace Essay Competition is an annual essay-writing contest open to everyone aged 25 and under all over the world. All essays should relate to PEACE, but beyond that young people are free to choose their own topics such as justice, peace movements, human rights and so on.
This competition is organised by the United Nations Association Coventry Branch.
Submissions are accepted from 1 January until 31 October each year.
The winners are announced in November.
Aims of the Competition
United Nations Association Coventry Branch aspires to nurture the creativity and dedication of young writers towards building and maintaining peace in their communities and the world in general.
This contest provides them with a platform to express their thoughts and feelings regarding peace-related issues and gives them a voice in building peace.
Rules of the Competition
Entry into the International Young People's Peace Essay Competition is free of charge.
Essays must be written in English.
There are two categories of authors, depending on their age at the submission deadline.
Category A includes authors aged 16 or less. The word limit is 500 words.
Category B is for those aged 17-25. The word limit is 1000 words.
For more details see the Rules page on the website.
Why enter this Competition?
This contest is an amazing opportunity for a young person to express their ideas, harness their creativity, learn more through research, improve on their writing skills, gain exposure to the world through publication online and in print (for the winning essays), and stand a chance to earn a winner's certificate, a monetary prize, have their work published on the Peace Essay and other websites and also in a book.
Possible Benefits of the Competition to Society
The contest is a platform for nurturing a generation of peace-oriented citizens and future leaders.
It is a potential tool for exploring young peoples’ opinions on peace agendas and for harnessing their enthusiasm for contributing to the improvement of peace in the world.
The collection of written essays could serve as a resource for various sectors for example a source of ideas for leaders, items for analysis by social scientists and law scholars, a motivation for use by teachers to encourage their students to write essays and a revelation for politicians about the issues that preoccupy the minds of young people.
