The Independent Think-Tank Expert-Grup in partnership with the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) from Brussels announce the winners of the first call of Youth Essay Prize Competition.
From the first call two prizes have now been awarded, to:
- Dinu Codreanu, 27 years, from Chisinau, Moldova, read the essay
- Bogdan Cuza, 16 years, from Chisinau, Moldova, read the essay
We congratulate both authors. The jury remarked: “Dinu’s essay is a very professional piece of policy analysis. Bogdan’s essay is a remarkably mature and moving contribution from a high school student”.
Short-listed runners-up were: Marina Rabinovych from Odessa, Ukraine and Rodian Rusnac from Chisinau, Moldova.
We remind you that the competition was announced at the beginning of 2017 with a first cut-off date of 31 March, with a view to holding a second call to follow later in the year. The essays had to be of a good analytical and linguistic quality, and preferably on a theme where the author was able to demonstrate knowledge in some depth through studies, research or professional experience.
