Youth Prize for Excellence in International Education Up for Grabs

March 29, 2007

CHARLESTON, W.Va. _ The Asia Society and The Goldman Sachs Foundation are looking for students who may qualify for the 2007 Goldman Sachs Foundation Youth Prize for Excellence in International Education.  

The 2007 competition asks students to select a problem or challenge that affects their local community as well as a community outside the United States; to create an in-depth written, audio, video or animated feature that compares and contrasts how these two communities have addressed the issue; and to explain why these approaches reflect the different cultural backgrounds of those involved, and what lessons the different communities could learn from each other.  

Five winners will be selected. Each will receive up to $10,000 as well as an all-expense paid trip to New York in November 2007 where they will be recognized at the Asia Society's Gala Annual Dinner.  

Contest rules and applications are available at Applications must be submitted by June 11, 2007.
