Charlemagne Youth Prize 2013 – Closing date 18th Feb

Charlemagne Youth Prize 2013 – Closing date extended to Feb 18th

Have you organised or participated in a project which helped to promote an understanding between people throughout Europe? Are you aged between 16 and 30? If so, this competition is for you.

The winning project will receive €5,000. Runners up will win €3,000 and third place will receive €2,000.

The European Parliament and the Foundation of the International Charlemagne Prize of Aachen are looking for projects which promote a European and international understanding, foster the development of a shared sense of European identity and offer practical examples of Europeans living together as one community. The projects can focus on the organisation of youth events, youth exchanges or internet projects with a European dimension.

The best national project will be chosen by a jury in each of the 27 EU Member States and representatives from each winning project will be invited to attend the award ceremony in Aachen in Germany in 2013, when an overall winner will be chosen.
