How to enter

Have you ever been to an event at your school, youth group, university – or even one run by the Scotland Malawi Partnership – and thought ‘I can do better than this!?’

Well now’s your chance!

We're launching a competition for anyone aged 14-24 to run their own Scotland-Malawi themed event in their area.

You have from now until 17th January to think of an amazing idea for a youth event and get your submission in.

You can enter on your own or as a group and the event could be anything you like – from an open-mic night, to a film screening or even hosting a giant Malawian meal!
