2012 World Summit Youth Award Calling For Nominations

The 2012 World Summit Youth Award (WSYA) is calling for nominations to select and promote the world’s best e-content created by young, social entrepreneurs and developers from all UN member states.

The award calls for "fresh technological ideas of the most creative Young Digital Natives from around the world" and encourages social entrepreneurship by celebrating those who work together to tackle ill-health, gender inequality, lack of education, lack of access to clean water, and environmental degradation.

Any individual under 30 years of age who is involved in a youth initiative "producing outstanding digital content towards achieving the UN Millennium Development Goals" is eligible for nomination for the 2012 edition of WSYA. Projects can be submitted within six categories: Fight Poverty, Hunger and Disease, Education for All, Power 2 Women, Create your Culture, Go Green, and Pursue Truth.
