what about result???

Comment by Evan O'Neil on January 2, 2014 at 10:41am

Aastha, we hope to have results by the end of January. It takes our judges a little while to read and evaluate all the entries.

Raghav, you are all set. Thank you for participating.

Krishi, yes, minor edits are acceptable. Please try to keep them to a minimum.

Good luck, everyone!

I made minor edits to my essay and resubmitted it. Is this acceptable? Thank you.

Comment by Raghav Chawla on December 30, 2013 at 5:13pm

I have posted on my wall but it said "awaiting approval". By when will it be visible to everyone and how will i get to know that it is visible to public. Also, do i have to do anything else to be eligible to participate in the contest?

Kindly address the above queries.

Thank you

Hi, I'm a newbie here, but it is a lie to say that I'm not interested in this competition.

My question is, "non students are automatically disqualified", but what if I'm a student now, but, let's say, I graduate in October 2013, am I still eligible for this competition?

Thank you

Where is Northern Ireland Now? with Peter Weir & Máirtín Ó Muilleoir

Peter Weir of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) and Máirtín Ó Muilleoir of Sinn Féin give their views on the situation in Northern Ireland, from the still unresolved collapse of the government in 2017 to the uncertainties over Brexit. Both agree that while there has been tremendous progress since the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, there is still much to be done--and according to Ó Muilleoir, many citizens are still not receiving equal treatment.

An Introduction to "Wellbeing in Northern Ireland" with Carnegie UK Trust's Martyn Evans

When Andrew Carnegie set up the Carnegie UK Trust, his mandate was short and to the point: Its mission is improve the wellbeing of the people of the United Kingdom, a task that Carnegie realized would change over time as people's needs changed. "The Trust is required to take risk," says its CEO Martyn Evans, who gives an overview of their work today, including libraries and research on towns, fulfilling work, and digital futures.
