Young Europeans Award is inviting all pupils interested in European issues to take part in a free to enter competition to win a trip to Warsaw. The Young Europeans aims to encourage dialogue and exchange between young people in the ‘Weimar Triangle’ countries – Germany, France and Poland.
For the 2017-18 round, the UK has been invited to take part as a guest country. Teams of young people from UK schools are invited to enter the competition (with support from their school) in groups of 6+ by sending in a collaborative creative project of their choice addressing the statement: ‘To be or not to be…a European’. To take part, pupils must be aged under 21 and should enter in teams of a minimum of 6-8 – two from the UK and at least two from France, Germany and Poland. UK schools with an existing partner school in one of the countries involved are particularly encouraged to take part in collaboration with new project partners in the remaining countries. To find a school, class or group to partner with, teachers and pupils can use the online partner-finding services provided by the German-French (DFJW) and the German-Polish Youth Office (DPJW).
Applications should be submitted no later than 1st March 2018.
