We are excited to announce the 9th edition of our nationwide competition. As part of our efforts to ensure that the competition is relevant to youths and addresses their concerns, we conducted a survey to determine which topics are underserved. Based on the survey results, we have selected two topics that we will focus on during the competition: Sustainability (Environment) and Prevention of Animal Cruelty. 

 

We look forward to exploring these important issues with our young participants and promoting a better future for all.
