2016 McKinsey Global Institute Global Essay Competition.


OPPORTUNITY OFFERED: Essay Contest


BRIEF DESCRIPTION: The McKinsey Global Institute has launched a global essay contest aimed at crowdsourcing solutions to one of Europe’s biggest political and economic conundrums: how to implement a pro-growth economic strategy that is both effective and that appeals to voters and policy-makers.
The essay prize is a follow-up to the MGI June 2015 report, A Window of Opportunity for Europe, which identified policy measures that could double GDP growth in Europe in a sustainable manner and create more than 20 million jobs in Europe. While that report identified the “why” and the “what,” it did not focus on the “how.”
WHO IS ELIGIBLE? The competition is open to Entrants worldwide provided that they are aged 18 years


RULES AND REGULATIONS: Full rules and regulations can be found here


REWARD OFFERED: The winner of the essay contest will receive a prize of €60,000. A prize of €25,000 will be awarded to the best essay written by an author under the age of 30. A further €15,000 will be awarded to runners-up at the discretion of the panel of judges, which is chaired by Pascal Lamy, a former European Trade Commissioner and ex-director general of the World Trade Organization.
