The First SDGs Speech Contest 2017

2017 UNPOG SDGs Contest
On September 15, 2017, UNPOG held the first annual SDGs contest, "Let's Talk about SDGs," in Songdo, Incheon, co-hosted with MOIS and Incheon Metropolitan City. This contest for high school students and university students asked participants to give presentations on how to promote the implementation of the SDGs and share their ideas with others. Sixty-eight teams across the country applied for the contest, and eight university student groups and eight high school student groups were invited to deliver their presentation in the final stage of the contest. Meanwhile, MOIS, as co-host of the contest, awarded a Minister’s Prize to the grand prize winner and three subsequent winners from among the university student groups, and Incheon Metropolitan City awarded a Mayor’s Prize to three winners from among the high school student groups. Mr. CHUNG Chae-Gun, Head of UNPOG, said that, "Today's contest can serve as a good opportunity to encourage Korean students to share smart ideas to participate in enhancing the advancement of the SDGs." UNPOG is planning to hold the second SDGs contest in September later this year. We hope all talented students will participate in this contest and share smart, new ideas on implementing the SDGs.
