UNICEF is the Children's Fund of the United Nations. It was raised immediately after the Second World War, as an organization helping children in emergency situations. Today UNICEF advocates the improvement of general living conditions of children in over 150 nations. The organization also facilitates the implementation of the "UN-Convention on the Rights of the Child" in 190 nations, which is the fundament for statutory regulation and realization of child rights in every country. Approved in 1989, the UN Child Rights Convention celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. UNICEF Switzerland is launching an idea contest, specifically on the subject of Child Rights.
*Complimentary Award/ Donation & Ideaprice: In this contest, apart from the community prize money, there will be a complimentary award of 1500€, which will be donated to a good cause. Once UNICEF decides to realize an idea, the regular prize for a 'sold idea' applies (1500 €). You'll find detailed information here.
