We are excited to launch the 2nd ASEAN Youth Social Journalism Contest (AYSJ) 2021 with ASEAN Secretariat, Irish Embassy, and ASEAN-USAID PROSPECT, a joint project of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and U.S. State Department!

Top 20 selected teams will participate in a virtual social journalism workshop to finetune their strategy plan and receive a USD 200 stipend to support the implementation of their campaign. The best performers will be awarded USD 1,000 for the first winner, USD 750 for the second winner, and USD 500 for the third winner to maximize the reach of their campaign!
