The British Council ‘Your World’ Global Competition 2017
In September 2016, the British Council’s Partner Schools Global network launched the second Your World global competition for school students. The theme for this academic year was ‘Hope’.
Students who take UK school examinations such as GCSEs and A levels at schools in our network were invited to work in groups and submit short videos to offer a window into their lives and their communities, for the world to see. This exciting global competition gave students from Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Nepal, Qatar, Jordan, Kuwait, Egypt, Sudan, UAE, Rwanda, Malawi, Uganda, Ghana, Zambia, Cyprus and Colombia an insight into the lives of students from cultures very different to their own.
1,864 students from 206 schools in 18 countries competed nationally, regionally and globally in this competition. We are delighted to announce that the national winner in Nigeria in the 14-17years category is Charles Dale Memorial International School, Port Harcourt, River State. While the 11 -13 years category was won by the West Mills British School, Lagos. We would like to warmly congratulate both schools for their outstanding performance!
Global winners of the 11-14 year-olds age group category are from Sudan. As for the 14-17 year-olds age group category, the lucky winners are from Montessori British School, Colombia. The global winners from Colombia and Sudan will be flying to the UK this summer along with their teacher to attend an accredited British Council school for creative arts.
