As many of you might remember from years past, the delegation of the European Union offers a competition for Canadian students who are interested in writing journalistic pieces. Students are asked to write a piece focusing on a current issue facing the European Union or EU-Canada relations. In terms of format, the work may be either written (a news story of maximum 1,000 words) or audiovisual (a report of up to 90 seconds duration).
If you know a student who might be interested in participating or other professors who might know students it would be highly appreciated if you could forward this information to them. The winners are invited to a one-week-study tour to Brussels. Please encourage your students to participate. The deadline for this competition is January 27, 2012.
