This year, the competition was open to young people across the region aged 18 years and under. More than 3,000 drawings were received from 24 countries illustrating how gender equality in education benefits everyone.

One drawing from each of the participating countries was chosen by the public and will be featured in the UNGEI 2012 calendar. The winning drawings will also be posted on the organizers’ respective websites. Additionally, winning drawings and all other entries in the contest will be used by UNGEI partner agencies in their respective publications, presentations, websites and promotional and advocacy materials.

The aim of the contest and of the calendar is to raise public awareness on regional issues of gender equality in education, and to paint a picture of the benefits reaped from gender equality in education for both girls and boys. 

The calendar will be released in early December.
