Encourage a Child: Be Judge

Since 2006, the Annual Essay Contest for Children and Young People of African Descent has encouraged and supported young Africans in Africa and across the African diaspora.

On 15 February 2020, almost 600 hundred children from Africa and the African diaspora will write on contemporary issues affecting them and their communities.    Encourage and celebrate them.   How?

Calling people of African descent across Africa and the African diaspora.  Be a Judge on the contest and receive a mix of essays from English-speaking Africa, the Caribbean, the US and the UK.

The process is simple: review this website — especially the previous years’ winning essays,  register as a Judge here  and share this message with your African contacts.  

Essays will be emailed to Judges in March 2020.

Encourage the next generation.
