The essay contest invites college and university students 18 years of age and older to write an essay in any of the official UN languages (English, Spanish, French, Arabic, Russian and Chinese) on the theme of multilingualism and the role it can play in fostering global citizenship and cultural understanding.

Sixty winners (10 for each of the official UN languages) will be selected to attend a week long Global Youth Forum in New York and speak at an event in the UN General Assembly in July.

The contest deadline is 31 March 2016 and more information, including contest rules and eligibility, can be found at
