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.
