GMR 2012 - Art Contest

Youth, skills and work – What skills do you need to create a better future?

We are pleased to announce the winner of the 2012 Education for All Global Monitoring Report art contest, and five honorary mentions. The contestants were asked to illustrate the theme of our upcoming report – youth, skills and work. We received many entries from young people around the world, making it difficult for the jury to pick their favourites.

The winner, Khalid Mohamed Hammad Elkhateem, will receive a trip to Paris to participate in an event publicizing the artwork and meet the EFA Global Monitoring Report team. The artworks will be displayed in an online gallery around the time of the launch of the 2012 Report, and some will be displayed in the materials promoting the 2012 EFA Global Monitoring Report.

  • Are young people leaving school with the skills they need to survive and thrive in society?
  • How can we make sure that all young people – especially those who face disadvantages – get a chance to learn job skills?
  • Are employers and governments doing their best to match up skills and jobs?
  • How can education help young people avoid unemployment – or being trapped in low-paid, insecure work?
