Some comments from a few of the 2007 Winners:

“I entered the competition as a means of drawing attention and creating awareness to the need to constantly interact with the youth so as to identify their challenges, potentials, and visions for self-development.”
Chinwe Miriam Onwubiko – Nigeria

“Along with all the flashing stories of “India is booming” with 9% GDP growth, I have seen, first hand, the plight and difficulty of my young friends in getting a decent job after finishing higher education and their despair and frustration, which sometimes lead to many negative outcomes. This essay contest came as a wonderful medium to express my opinions and views on this issue and prompted me to write about them.”
Tirthajyoti Sarkar – India
