The contest was organised by UNESCO to recognise the talent of children and youth across the globe. WhizJuniors joined hands with UNESCO to offer a global platform to its students.
The theme of the competition “Empowering local communities to fulfill global missions” invited extraordinary thoughts and talents from the students who showcased their out-of-the-box, brilliant ideas. The top nine winners of the competition will be recognised and showcased in global events during the year. The list of winners are published on UNESCO and USFUCA websites as well.
