TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has held a contest for the children and teenagers between 5 and 19, asking them to create a poster showing a world where no one is left behind and everyone has access to healthy and affordable food.
“Everything in our world is connected – from our food to our cultures, environment and economies. Today, many people continue to face global challenges like poverty and hunger, climate change, conflict and inequality. Global challenges need global solutions! We can all learn how to be part of these global solutions, for a sustainable future where every person counts. Take a photo or scan your poster and submit your entry by filling out the form on our website. The deadline is 4 November 2022,” the FAO office said in a statement.
Three winners in each age category will be selected by FAO’s jury and announced in December. Winners will be promoted by FAO offices around the world and receive a surprise gift bag and Certificate of Recognition.
The participants must be aged 5-19. The deadline for entries is November 4, 2022.
The contest is open to children and youth living anywhere in the world. The age to declare in the entry form is the one at the time of entering the contest. Minors must have the permission of their parents or legal guardians to participate in the contest.
