DEADLINE: Climate Champion Profiles — A Storytelling Competition

Event Date: 
March 1, 2023

Any teenage journalist anywhere in the world can profile someone who is helping — really helping — to save the planet for our new global storytelling competition. Deadline is 1 March 2023 for the profiles: original works in English as text, a podcast, a video or multimedia. The competition is organized by Global Youth & News Media.

This journalism competition is part of The Writing’s on the Wall project, a partnership of the global educational news service News Decoder (France), The Climate Academy based at the European School Brussels II (Belgium) and the Global Youth & News Media nonprofit (France). It is co-funded by the European Union as part of its Erasmus+ initiative and by The New Earth Foundation (USA).

The winners get coaching from the top editor at News Decoder, the international educational news service, with the goal of publication. The top two winners will receive a cash prize of $500 each.

All participants have access to The Writing’s on the Wall project resources: climate backgrounders and webinars, tips about interviewing and the storytelling process, and more.
