The European Commission's Directorate-General for Enlargement is pleased to announce the forthcoming launch of the pan-European article writing competition: ‘So similar. So different. So European.’
The competition will be open to young people aged 18-25 from the 28 EU Member States. It will run until 27 February 2015 (midday CET). Participants will be invited to answer one or both of the following questions (max 1000 words):
