Monaco Red Touch Challenge aimed at youth

The first ever edition of the Monaco Red Touch Challenge, organised by Le Pôle Jeunesse, is daring Monaco’s young people to come up with projects, under a variety of themes, that will better lives and aid people or the environment.

It is open to civic-minded individuals who are looking for an outlet for a social project that falls under three main categories. The first is any proposal that promotes contact and assistance to the community’s most vulnerable. It could also be a plan to raise awareness for environmental issues, or a project based on educational training or personal development programmes to be executed in Monaco.

Participants can be individuals or in a group of up to four people and must be at least 16 years of age. Each project must have a team name and a chosen theme.

The project must consist of a presentation of the team, the context and the problem, the objectives and beneficiaries of the project, the expected results and the annual budget estimate. Each entrant will then present their project on 10 slides accompanied by a one-minute maximum video.

The best projects will be presented in front of a jury made up of specialists from Red Cross Monaco and the Sancta Devota Foundation, who will select their top two favourites. The first-place winner will receive €2,000 and the runner-up will get €1,000 from Sancta Devota.

Projects must be submitted before 13th February to to be considered.
