Entries Open for the 2nd Africa Scout Storytelling Contest
The World Scout Bureau Africa Support Centre is pleased to invite entries for the 2nd Africa Scout Storytelling Contest, which will run for a period of two months starting on 26th April and closing on 28 June 2019.
This contest offers the opportunity for Scouts to use their skills in writing, photography and videography to contribute to this year’s theme “Scouts for Sustainable Development Goals in Africa” to highlight, through photographs, videos and stories, the many positive actions (programmes, projects, activities, events, campaigns etc) Scouts in Africa are undertaking to contribute to the development and the improvement of their communities by taking action on any of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The contest is open to Scouts from National Scout Organizations (NSO) within the Africa Scout Region. As much as the contest targets Africans, Scouts from around the world can also submit their entries, on condition that the contents of their submission must depict African Scouts and must have been created in Africa.
We look forward to receiving entries capturing Scouts in action on any of the SDGs. Visit sdgs.scouts.org for learn more.
All entries should be submitted to the World Scout Bureau Africa Support Centre not later than 28 June 2019 by email to email@example.com. Due to the high number of entries we may not be able to acknowledge receipt of all entries. Contestants of shortlisted and winning entries will however be notified directly through contacts provided. Selection of entries will be done by a panel of judges drawn from staff and volunteers within World Scouting. Winners will be announced on 31st July 2019.
In case you have any queries or need assistance with your entries, contact my colleague Nelson Opany, Manager, Communications and Partnerships at the World Scout Bureau Africa Support Centre on firstname.lastname@example.org. We encourage you to help us spread the word among your members and on social media using the hashtag #Scouts4SDGsAfrica. Please see the attached guideline for the rules of the contest.
