Fifth Annual CIPE International Youth Essay Competition Winners Announced

Posted on the 27 February 2013 by Center For International Private Enterprise @CIPEglobal

CIPE is pleased to announce the winners of the fifth annual International Youth Essay competition today. This year we received more than 300 entries from 62 countries, including Belarus, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Egypt, Iraq, Jamaica, Paraguay, and Russia. The three categories this year were Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Inclusive Growth, and Social Transformations. The winners were selected by an international panel of judges including CIPE’s partners from business associations, think tanks, and other international development organizations around the world, as well as CIPE staff.

Past winners have gone on to publish a book with their winnings, start a similar contest in Romania, and found an NGO in Ghana focused on youth, garnering media attention from the likes of the Wall Street Journal. Keep an eye on these rising stars as they continue a tradition of excellence.
