Inspired by Malala’s words, we would love you to use your words to show how the world can be a better place. This could be about climate change, helping the environment, how we treat one another, equality – whichever area you are most concerned about, or would most like to see change.
- Use a language (or languages) other than English to show your ideas, hopes or even advice for our world.
- It can be in any written format, for example a poem, an essay, a song, a cartoon – be creative!
- There is no minimum or maximum number of words!
- Judging categories: P1-4, P5-7, S1-3 and S4-6.
- Individual or group entries are welcome.
