Are you a Senegalese university student between the ages of 18 to 30 years old? If so, the World Bank wants you to have your say on some of the most pressing development challenges in your country.
The World Bank office in Senegal has organized the #Blog4Dev contest for youth to share their ideas on how to boost inclusive development in one of the following areas: agriculture, energy, or tourism.
What is expected of you?
Describe the kinds of development initiatives and policies in either agriculture, energy, or tourism that if implemented, would ensure that benefits from the sectors reach all segments of the society (women, youth, rural populations – just to name a few).
Describe your development vision for one of these sectors in no more than 700 words, submit your entry to the #Blog4Dev contest, and you could win a two month youth project monitor position at the World Bank office in Dakar!
The winning submissions will be selected based on the following criteria: Originality, Creativity, Clarity and practical messages
The writer of the winning blog for each sector (agriculture, energy, tourism) will win a paid two month internship as a youth project monitor at the World Bank office in Senegal.
Also, the three winning blogs will be published on the WBG’s Nasikiliza blog page, and also promoted on World Bank social media channels between July and August 2016. These will be credited to the respective bloggers.
To enter the competition, submit your original blog entry of not more than 700 words by June 30th here
Entries will be accepted in French or in English.
Only one submission per entrant will be allowed. Terms and conditions apply.
Deadline: June 30, 2016.
