I've participated in one of these competitions two years ago when the theme was "The role of media, information and communication technology in building a peaceful world". I didn't win, but it still was a useful experience.Smile When it comes to these kind of competitions I really think that even if you don't win, simply participating is enough, because you get to express your opinions on a certain subject and also, there are never enough challenges that push you to find out information and to actually think.
