The 2013 Do Better Challenge Essay Competition is now open!
Last year we challenged One Young World Delegates to tell world leaders how they could do better. Delegates wrote letter-style essays to CEOs, politicians and other influential leaders highlighting a single problem and outlining a tangible solution.
This year, the winner of the Do Better Challenge will present their essay to the entire One Young World Summit as a Delegate Speaker and will also get a FREE Returning Ambassador spot for Dublin 2014 as well as having their essay published in a major news outlet.
Have a look at last year’s winning essay and shortlisted entries for some information:
