Dear Sir, Madam,
I’m writing to you today on behalf of the European Commission’s
Directorate General for Enlargement in the framework of a writing
competition entitled “WHAT DOES AN ENLARGED EU MEAN TO YOU?,” which
targets young people from EU Member States as well as from countries in
the enlargement process.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the biggest round of EU
enlargement, with the unprecedented accession of ten countries. Today,
the EU perspective is open to Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the
former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Montenegro,
Serbia and Turkey. In this context, the competition will allow young
people (aged 15-25) to share their views on:
Ø WHAT CAN TODAY’S EUROPEAN UNION OF 28 MEMBER STATES LEARN FROM ITS
PAST TO HELP IMPROVE ITS FUTURE?
Ø WHAT DOES AN ENLARGED EUROPEAN UNION MEAN TO YOU?
Participants are invited to write an article (max. 700 words) or up to
three blog posts (max. 700 words altogether). The competition will be
open until 11 May 2014.
National juries will select one entry from each age group (15-18 year
olds and 19-25 year olds) for further evaluation by an international
jury. The best entry in each category will be awarded the grand prize.
We’re excited to hear what young people have to say about the European
Union and enlargement. We would be grateful if you could help us
disseminate the information on your website and/or social media network
and encourage young people around you to participate. To help you
spread the word, we’ve enclosed the promotional material (a poster, a
press release, and web banners) as well as the rules of the competition.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I
look forward to hearing from you.
