Contest asks youth to think ‘family’


A competition launched by the World Youth Alliance is asking young people, aged 10 to 30, to tell them why their family matters.

The winner of the “Family Matters” competition will be invited to attend the Europe4Family event in Brussels, Sept. 9-12. 

Europe4Family will gather thousands of European youth, who will walk or bike to express their support for the family and to demand more pro-family legislation in the European Union.

Youth must e-mail their entries of 50 words or less to by April 1. Participants need to include their name, date of birth, complete address and telephone number.

Results will be announced on International Day of the Family, May 15, on the Europe4Family Web site. The best entries will be exhibited at the European Parliament in Brussels.
