Competition for Youth – Rural Women Empowerment

Looking for an academic EFS-related assignment for your high school class? Perhaps an enrichment challenge? Here’s a competition for papers about the role of rural women in poverty and hunger eradication. Here’s a description from SustainUS and links to their website:

SustainUS, an organization of young people advancing sustainable development and youth empowerment in the United States, has announced a competition for young writiers.

CitizenScience, the science and technology program of SustainUS, is hosting its annual paper competition. The winning submission from each group will be published in Citizen Science, an online journal that honors youth in the United States that are interested in enriching public dialogue with innovative and scientific approaches to sustainable development. Papers should be written for a non-scientific audience on natural or social science topics related to “the empowerment of rural women and their role in poverty and hunger eradication, development and current challenges.”

Youth ages 13-26 are invited to submit original research or position papers to the Citizen Science Technical Board for the 2012 Citizen Science paper competition! Winners will, in addition to publication, have the chance to present their work at the United Nations (UN) Commission on Status of Women (CSW), convening at UN Headquarters, NYC in Feb. 27-March 9 2012!
