European Union – Awarding of European education prizes (Brussels, September 20, 2016)

On September 20, Minister of State for European affairs Harlem Désir joined his German and Polish counterparts, Michael Roth and Konrad Szymańsk, in handing out Young Europeans awards to French, German, Polish and Ukrainian students aged 14 to 16.

Established in 2015, this contest aims to raise awareness of European issues among young people under 21, and is organized by the Fondation Hippocrène. Each year, a non-EU guest country is invited with a view to fostering communication among young people; this year’s guest is Ukraine.
