Whether you choose to express yourself in words or in photos, we're looking for thoughtfulness, originality, and vision.

Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs is pleased to announce its two annual international contests.

"Around the world, politicians, scientists, and scholars are debating how we can solve urgent global problems, from inequality to climate change," said Madeleine Lynn, Carnegie Council communications director. "But the future belongs to you, this generation of students, and we want to learn about your ideas. These are challenging issues. Whether you choose to express yourself in words or in photos, we're looking for thoughtfulness, originality, and vision."    

The deadline for both contests is January 5, 2016. Prizes are Amazon Gift Certificates and the winning entries will be posted on the Carnegie Council website.
