The purpose of the Many Languages, One World Essay Contest and Global Youth Forum is to highlight the importance of multilingualism as it relates to global citizenship. Students from all over the world submitted thoughtful, insightful essays on the subject, and we appreciate and applaud the efforts of all the students who took the time to share their views on multilingualism.

We can think of no better way to recognize the hard work of the sixty contest winners than to let their words speak for themselves. Below, organized by language group, we are pleased to present the winning essays of the Many Languages, One World Essay Contest.
