Call for Entries for the 2024 SADC Tertiary Institution Essay Competition

The SADC Tertiary Institution Essay Competition, a prestigious event honoring the founders of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and their vision for regional integration, is now open for submissions. This initiative seeks to recognize the significant contributions made by the founders of SADC towards the establishment of the organization and the advancement of regional cooperation.

The theme for the 2024 edition of the competition is “In your opinion, what has SADC achieved since its formation, and does it reflect the vision of its founders?” This thought-provoking topic invites active tertiary institution learners to share their insights and perspectives on the accomplishments of SADC and its alignment with the original vision of its founders.

Active tertiary institution students are encouraged to submit their essay entries through their respective Ministries of Education in SADC Member States. Government officials in each Member State will be responsible for selecting the top three essays for submission to the SADC Secretariat for regional adjudication.

The winners of the SADC Tertiary Institution Essay Competition will receive prestigious awards at the regional level. The first prize winner will be awarded a prize of USD 2000, the second prize winner will receive USD 1500, and the third prize winner will be granted USD 1000. Additionally, the top 10 winners will receive certificates signed by the Chairperson of the SADC Organ on Politics, Defence, and Security.

While there will be monetary rewards for winners, the top essays from each Member State will be recognized with certificates of achievement. This competition offers a unique opportunity for students to engage with regional integration issues, showcase their skills, and contribute to the ongoing dialogue on the future of SADC.
