Offer: Essay Competition: Looking At ICTs And Agriculture In Africa Through The Eyes Of Women And The Youth
The New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) Agency and the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation ACP-EU (CTA) have joined forces in celebrating NEPAD’s 10th Anniversary. It is within this context of reflecting over the advancement of the African development agenda, that the two institutions are jointly organising an essay competition under the theme; "Looking at ICTs and entrepreneurship in agriculture and rural development through the eyes of women and the youth". Deadline for submissions extended to September 25, 2011 for North Africa.
This contest also falls in the framework of CTA activities on Youth, Women and ICTs. In line with these objectives, CTA and the NEPAD Agency are searching for enthusiastic African young (writers, journalists and other youth), who want to demonstrate their abilities by examining these issues.
The Awards recognize excellence across a number of categories centred on the attraction, retention and progression of youth, women’s and African talents to further the African development agenda.
