Tag ‘Youth Essay Competition 2017’
Less than a week to go until the start of the SME Assembly 2017! We’ve been telling you to get ready, shown you the programme, introduced the venue and given a few sneak peeks at what to expect from the assembly…so what is left?
Today we share with you the final programme and a quick re-cap of everything to have a look at and look forward to next week in Tallinn. Be sure to check out the latest version of the programme here for a look at the policy sessions, masterclasses, presentations and much more.
One of the big events at the SME Assembly 2017 will be the final European Enterprise Awards (EEPA) Ceremony where the European winners across all the different categories will be announced. All of the national winners as well as the EEPA shortlist have been introduced here on the Promoting Enterprise News Portal, but don’t worry if you can not remember who is competing, have a look right here.
Interested in who judged all of these entries and selected the Grand Jury Prize winner? Re-meet the EEPA 2017 Jury here.
Another exciting part of the SME Assembly 2017 will be the live finals of the Youth Essay Competition, during which the top three entrants, Evlampia Karavangeli, Oksana Vedmidska and Pavle Kostic will be presenting their ideas to the Assembly delegates. We wish them the best of luck with their final preparations before next week!
Not one but two live finals! The SME Assembly 2017 will also play host to the semi-finals for the latest Ideas from Europe search, which will result in a live announcement of the Ideas from Europe finalists on the final day of the Assembly.

The Youth Essay Competition results are in! After a lot of deliberation and discussion, the Jury have selected their top three submissions who will go on to compete for first place at the SME Assembly 2017 in Tallinn!
So who wrote the top three submissions? Congratulations to:
Evlampia Karavangeli is 22 and from the small town of Drama in northern Greece. She is currently studying at the Democritus University of Thrace Medical School and is very enthusiastic about her studies. She is multilingual and speaks Greek, English and German and is also studying Spanish, which she combines with her love for sketching and literature.
Find out what her essay ‘Checkmate in Entrepreneurship’ is all about when she presents it live at the SME Assembly 2017 next month!
Oksana Vedmidska is from the small town of Pryluky, not far the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv. After finishing her studies in Technical Translation, she went on to work as a translator of medical texts, working in English, German and Russian. She then went on to win a scholarship that took her to Germany to study a Masters in the areas of dubbing, subtitling, audio descriptions for the blind, and easy language. Earlier this year she was also selected to represent her home country of Ukraine at the UN General Assembly in New York as a winner of the 2017 edition of the Many Languages One World competition.
What skills does Oksana think an entrepreneur needs? And why does she think “entrepreneurship is one of the most effective tools, which our global society has to transform the world into a better place”? We will find out during her live presentation in Tallinn in November!
Pavle Kostic is from Nova Pazova in Serbia and is currently in the third year of his Management studies at the University of Belgrade. He has been actively involved in several art, essay, photography and debate competitions, including the Serbian competition for ‘Best business ethics essay’ which he won in 2014.
What can we expect from Pavle’s essay ‘Ethics and a system as a prerequisite of regular competition’? Find out next month at the SME Assembly when he presents it live!
We would also like to thank all the other writers who submitted their work. This year the quality was very high and the Jury had a very difficult decision when narrowing it down to the top three. Be sure to follow Evlampia, Oksana and Pavle on their journey to Tallinn as they get ready for the live finale where the Youth Essay Competition 2017 winner will be revealed...
