A GLOBAL AWARD CELEBRATING YOUNG SOCIAL INNOVATORS
Established in 2005, The World Summit Youth Award (WSYA) is a leading international award honoring excellence on the use of Internet for social improvement. As an annual contest it seeks to motivate young people under the age of thirty to actively implement the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. The MDGs were set in 2000 by the UN to prompt member states and civil society to fight poverty, hunger and disease, inequalities, lack of education and environmental degradation.
