2023 World Citizen Essay Contest Awards Ceremony
Hamilton International Middle School
Seattle, WA, USA
The World Affairs Council's Global Classroom is thrilled to celebrate our 2023 World Citizen Essay Contest winners and honorable mentions in-person for the first time in three years on Thursday, May 25th, 2022 from 6:00 - 7:30PM PT. This year, students across Washington State were asked to develop a creative strategy and/or solution to address a global issue they were passionate about, highlighting potential innovative strategies and solutions to positively impact people's lives locally and globally. We received over 200 essay submissions this year and extend our sincere gratitude to all of the educators who shared this opportunity with their students; the parents who allowed and encouraged their children to participate in this year's contest; and all of the youth who shared their voices with us on issues, global and local, important to them. We truly appreciate you all taking the time to let your voices be heard and for uplifting our youth!
This year's awards ceremony will be held at Hamilton International Middle School, located in Seattle, WA. This is a FREE event open to family, friends, educators, and community members. Doors open at 5:30pm! The evening will begin with a conversation centering global education with keynote speaker Dr. Anu Taranath, moderated by Global Classroom Director, Ryan Hauck. After the conversation, we will honor our 2023 World Educator and 2023 Global Competence Certificate Recipients, followed by the announcement of the 2023 World Citizen Essay Contest winners and honorable mentions to close out the ceremony.
