Welcome to the Blogging Prizes! We have published a record number of articles this year, which you can browse here. Six articles were shortlisted in this Youth category, which our stellar Jury is considering for first and runner-up Prizes!

To participate, authors had to write an essay of 500 to 1200 words on one of these topics:

    1. Is education a right or a privilege?
    2. "While technology is important, it's what we do with it that truly matters." - Muhammad Yunus. Discuss.
    3. "If you are lonely when you're alone, you are in bad company." - Jean-Paul Sartre. Discuss.
    4. Discuss the photo.

It doesn't matter if English was not the author's first language: the Jury will look at the quality of their arguments and the originality of their ideas.

What happens next?
