Posted By: Mara Therese Ohorodnik    Published: Friday, 16 Jan 2015
ELS Educational Services, Inc. is pleased to announce our sponsorship, in conjunction with the United Nations and partnered with Adelphi University, of the Many Languages, One World Student Essay Contest and Global Youth Forum for 2015.
 
The contest will qualify contestants for a trip to New York to participate in the United Nations Global Youth Forum and ELS Preparatory Conference. The goal of the Many Languages, One World Student Essay Contest and Global Youth Forum is to support multilingualism, to reflect on UN sustainability goals, and to recognize the continued impact of the six UN official languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. As such, students are being asked to write essays in their second or third language.
 
Students 18 years of age and older who are currently enrolled in a full-time program of study at university are eligible to compete to win a place as a delegate to the Preparatory Conference and Global Youth Forum. Students must be sponsored by a University Faculty Member or Authorized University Representative in order to participate.
 
Essay Submissions Deadline: March 25, 2015, at 11:59 PM EST
