The Kwibuka20 Blog Post Competition


Are you a young writer, researcher or academic? Enter the Kwibuka20 Blog Post Competition and share your voice with the world.

The Kwibuka20 Blog Post Competition is a chance for young people to explore issues of genocide, atrocity prevention, conflict and peace-building and show the world the discussions that are taking place in the global youth community. You can answer one of three questions, each related to part of the Kwibuka20 theme: ‘Remember, Unite, Renew’. Entries will be judged by a panel of experts on genocide prevention and the international media. Winners will be published in the international press and alongside shortlisted entries in the inaugural edition of the Generation for Change journal, Our Voice.

  1. Why is it important to remember the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi and mass atrocities elsewhere?
  2.  How can we tackle division and prejudice, and unite around our shared humanity?
  3. How can societies rebuild and renew after state sponsored discrimination, hate and conflict?
  4. Judges are looking for sophisticated analytical skill, coherent arguments and interesting debate.
  5. Entries should be between 1000 and 2000 words, and can be submitted in English, French or Kinyarwanda.

The twentieth commemoration of the Genocide against the Tutsi is an important occasion to remember the lives that were lost and unite to ensure it never happens again – in Rwanda or elsewhere. Being part of the Kwibuka20 Blog Post Competition is one way of doing just that. Entries close on 31 March 2014. Don’t forget to read the rules and guidelines carefully before submitting your entry.
