NGFP Young Voices Award 2022
Next Generation Foresight Practitioners - Young Voices (NGFP - YV) Awards
Check the winners of the 2022 Awards and Recognitions awards for applicants between 12-17 years of age.
The Young Voices Award aims to showcase the voices of our youth 12-17 years of age. The first-place winner will receive a USD $1000 prize to help realize their future-focused project and catapult their idea into action. Three others will each receive a USD $500 prize. Six top finalists will also be recognised for their ideas and efforts.
We know that very young people are doing great things to create a better future - and we would like to hear about them. We see this as the start of a conversation with them, so we can learn, listen, and support them as they start or continue their foresight journey.
The qualities we are looking for are curiosity about the changing world and the people around them. They should have an interest in translating new future-focussed ideas into action in service to their community. Young Voices applicants should have a willingness to become an ambassador for futures and for sustainability.
To apply, applicants are asked to:
Write a short essay (maximum 400 words) on how a current project or an intended project will consider the well-being of others and the future o the planet. Submissions can be in native language but please include English translation.
Create and submit a short video (maximum 2m 30s) about what they would want to do with the Young Voices prize. The Video is a pitch addressed to their community persuading them that this project or idea is good or even necessary and giving them reasons for supporting or joining it. Video can be in your native language but please include English subtitles. Please create new and original video and do not upload a news clipping or old video.
Indicate which of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) their idea would contribute to.
