SME Week Youth Essay Competition – meet the finalists!

Tags: , , , , , , ,

The standard of the submissions was very high in this year’s SME Week Youth Essay Competition, so our jury had a difficult task. Nevertheless, their deliberations have concluded and we can announce the three finalists that will be travelling to Prague later this month to attend the SME Assembly.

And so, without further ado, here are this year’s three YEC finalists:

  • Danijel Bačan
  • Cosmin-Alin Botoroga, and
  • Viktória Vass

Congratulations to the three finalists, we wish them the best of luck at the SME Assembly, where they will present their essays to over 500 delegates, after which the winning essay will be selected in a public vote. The essays of all the finalists will be promoted across the EU channels.

Check out the essays from Daniel, Cosmin-Alin and Viktoria and get ready to join us at the SME Assembly 2022 later this month, where you can vote for your favourite in this year’s Youth Essay Competition!
