Are you passionate about the future of Kenya as a democratic country?
Then here's your opportunity to join other young people in voicing your opinions. If you are aged between 18-24, this is your chance.

Amkeni Wakenya (a UNDP facility that supports and strengthens the role of civil society in the deepening of democracy in Kenya) is giving you a chance to win $2500 through an essay competition presented in written or audiovisual format. The written essays in English should not be 3500. DVD Entries- either as individual or group- should be no more than 5 minutes, and should be original- could be in Swahili or English.
Typed essays must be double spaced and in font size 12. If handwritten, please write legibly. DVDs should be original, not more than 5 minutes, and could be presented as a group project.

Each entry should address one of the following topics:

2. Heroes or Heroines of our time: Who is your Kenyan hero or heroine? and what significant contribution have they made towards bettering our country?
