If you are 16 to 19 years old, currently enrolled in a high school or secondary school and COVID-19 has affected your learning or the education of a friend or family member, you are invited to take part in the World Bank Group and the Financial Times’ third joint global blog/essay writing competition.

The pandemic has disrupted our lives everywhere, and is changing how we live, work and learn. This health crisis is creating another crisis – an education crisis. The World Bank estimates that an additional 72 million primary school-age children will fall into learning poverty, due to extended school closures caused by the pandemic. Learning poverty is when a child cannot read and understand a simple text by the age of 10.

World Bank Group and the Financial Times’ Essay Contest 2021

As the global community works on identifying solutions, the World Bank and Financial Times want to hear from those most affected – young people. They want to hear from you! Tell them what you think by joining this blog competition.

You can do so by telling them:

How has your learning experience been affected by COVID-19? What would you tell educators and policy makers to do differently? What would make an impact on your learning experience?
