College students, & high-school seniors and juniors– Enter this contest for an all-expenses-paid trip to our annual national assembly in Washington D.C.
VISIT AND LOBBY YOUR MEMBER OF CONGRESS.
PARTICIPATE IN AN INTERACTIVE SIMULATION WHERE YOU MUST OVERCOME REAL OBSTACLES TO CREATE A U.N. THAT ACTUALLY SOLVES OUR GLOBAL PROBLEMS.
MEET GLOBAL ACTIVISTS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
Citizens for Global Solutions (CGS) of Greater St. Louis will provide transportation, registration, meals, & lodging for a college student or a high-school junior or senior to participate in the Citizens for Global Solutions national assembly in Washington DC.
The conference begins at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday, May 19, so you should be able to leave St. Louis Wednesday morning. It ends late afternoon Saturday, May 22, so you could be back that night if you wish. If you want to do sightseeing in Washington on Sunday, we will also provide housing for you for Saturday night (but not extra meals). Getting to and from the St. Louis airport is your responsibility.
If you want to be a contestant for this all-expenses-paid trip, write a 3-5 page typed essay (double-spaced) consisting of two parts. In the first part tell us why your past activities and successes show that you would be a good person for us to send to this meeting. In the second part, share with us your thinking about one or more of the problems our world community faces and how we might deal with them more effectively.
In exchange for this subsidy, CGS of St. Louis expects you to give us a brief written report about the conference & what you learned from it. (This gets published in our local newsletter.)
Send your essay to:
Ronald J. Glossop, 8894 Berkay Avenue, Jennings, MO 63136-5004
or preferably by e-mail to: <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Be sure to include your home address and home telephone number.
