“The ECYP provides a great opportunity for young people from across Europe, including Scotland, to showcase their work and further develop their European integration projects. banner-925x200-en.gif

“I would love to see as many entries from Scotland as possible, so if you are 16-30 years old and run a project with European dimension you should apply now and compete for international recognition and the prize money.”

“The winning projects should provide models for young people living in Europe and offer practical examples of Europeans living together as one community. Past winners include a Twitter project from Luxembourg, a Social Soccer Cup from Austria, youth exchange programmes, artistic and internet based projects with a European dimension. I keep my fingers crossed for a 2016 winner from Scotland!”
