APPLY: 2022 World Bank-Financial Times Blog Writing Contest for Young Writers

World Bank-Financial Times Blog Writing Contest – The World Bank and the Financial Times are looking for your most inventive ideas, high-quality writing, and solutions to improve education outcomes beyond the pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt our way of life, causing education systems to experience their worst crisis in a century. At the peak of school closures in April 2020, 94 percent of students—or 1.6 billion children—were out of school worldwide. Around 700 million students today are still studying from home.

The pandemic is putting an entire generation of students at risk of losing about $10 trillion in future lifetime earnings. It has exacerbated the Learning Poverty crisis, and the impact on the human capital of this generation of learners will be long-lasting.
