World Food Day Poster Contest 2017

The World Food Day poster contest calls on children and teens from 5-19 to use their imaginations and express their ideas on the World Food Day theme: "Change the future of migration. Invest in food security and rural development."

Three winners in each age category will be selected by the jury. The results will be announced on the World Food Day website and FAO social media. Winners will be promoted by FAO offices around the world and receive a surprise gift bag and Certificate of Recognition.
