World of 7 BIllion Video Scholarship Contest
Population growth is a threat multiplier – it makes other problems worse and more difficult to combat. Through the World of 7 Billion student video contest, middle and high schoolers are given the platform to think critically about global challenges related to population and share what they think we should do to fix it.
Students must currently be in grades 6 to 12 or the international equivalent, to be eligible to win.
