  1. Good day. May i ask for information and/or deatails about joining the competition. Thank you.

    • Hello Maria! The competition takes place every year, throughout the month of February. Anyone from school grades 6-12, University levels 1-4, as well as working professionals may participate. Currently, the competitions are facilitated by Peace Corps volunteers, but the project is working towards increasing sustainability and including nationals from participating countries in the judging process. If you are a student/professional and you do not have Peace Corps volunteers in your country, our team can work to find a way for a competition to be facilitated in your country of origin next February. Please let me know if this helped!
