The Erindale Academy

1576 Dundas St W
Mississauga, Ontario

The goal of the Global Youth Challenge is to inspire students around the world to reflect, think, and consider how the COVID19 pandemic has affected the world. Your voice is needed now, more than ever. Let’s begin to heal the world. This competition is for youth ages 14-19. 

Writing and speaking contest consists of a 300-500 word essay or visual artwork and a video.

Each entry to the contest will consist of an essay or piece of visual art produced by a current school student, that looks at the effects of COVID-19 through the lens of a subject like mathematics, art, history, business, and science.

For example, a participant who looks at COVID-19 from a historical viewpoint can make a comparison of the epidemics throughout history and how COVID-19 has changed history. An art lover can create a piece of artwork, write about it, and present his/her ideas about the impacts of COVID-19 on humanity as a whole. A student who is interested in business studies can show his/her thoughts on the consequences of COVID-19 as well as solutions during and after the pandemic to businesses and the entire economy of his/her country and the world. Students interested in sciences can illustrate their thinking of medical solutions to helping prevent the spread of the virus.
