World Bank & Financial Times’ blog writing competition for high school students

Date:

You could win a chance at being published in the Financial Times and the World Bank Blogs, and attending, the World Bank Group/IMF Spring Meetings in Washington D.C. in April 2020, with your expenses covered.

Application Deadline: February 10th, 2020

If you can read this, then you are already doing better than 53% of children in low- and middle-income countries, who can’t read a simple text by age 10. Being able to read is fundamental for children to be
able to learn other subjects like science and history. It also creates opportunities and opens more doors for them as they get older.

What can be done to help children learn to read by the time they are 10 years old? We want to hear from you! 

You can tell us by answering one of these two questions: 

  • If you were the education minister of your country what would you do to make sure every 10-year old is able to read?
  • What could teachers and schools do differently to help all children learn to read?

This is your chance to get creative. The World Bank Group and the Financial Times are organizing our second joint global blog/essay writing competition.   This competition builds on the World Bank Group’s Human Capital Project and its Report on Ending Learning Poverty.

We are looking for your most inventive ideas, high quality writing, and innovative solutions to help more children learn to read. We want your creativity.

Send us:

  • A strong blog or essay, that is no longer than 500 words.
  • Photos, videos, visualizations that help support your story, are optional.
  • Your name, age, school, email, and country you live in.

The deadline for submissions is February 10th, 2020.
Entries will be judged by a high-level panel comprised of senior officials at the World Bank, Financial Times, and select partners.

You could win a chance at being published in the Financial Times and the World Bank Blogs, and attending, the World Bank Group/IMF Spring Meetings in Washington D.C. in April 2020, with your expenses covered.
