LEAP Africa International Youth Day 2017 Peace Challenge
Call for Submissions
LEAP Africa is proud to be part of a global recognition and promotion of the United Nations’ (UN) International Youth Day which is celebrated each year to recognize the efforts of the world’s youth in enhancing the global society. The theme of this year’s International Youth Day – which takes place on August 12, 2017 – is “Youth Building Peace” and it is dedicated to celebrating young people’s contributions to conflict prevention and transformation as well as inclusion, social justice, and sustainable peace.
LEAP Africa, in partnership with African Artists’ Foundation, is calling upon young people (ages 15-30) to submit a creative and inspiring picture or a video that promotes peace by posting it on their Instagram page in the areas of:
- Spoken word or Poetry.
- Art works (photography, artistic drawing, painting or graphic design).
PLEASE NOTE: Contestants must follow LEAP Africa on their social media pages and post their submissions using the hashtags #LEAPIYD2017 and #Youth4Peace.
