Save the Children India and Youth Ki Awaaz got along in March this year to advocate for inclusion of child rights in political manifestos running up to the elections, through the #Vote4Children. While the campaign saw success right before theÂ polls, and massive support from all corners, we kept the advocacy going on to ensure implementation.
In April, the campaign launched a blog-a-thon, or a blogging marathon, inviting blog entries on child rights. The response was overwhelming with over 150 individual blogs participating, and it took us a while to go through each of the fantastic entries to select the top two, who would be featured on YKA and would also win a Moto G phone and an Amazon Kindle, respectively.
The editors at Youth Ki Awaaz selected the top 20 posts, and the experts at Save the Children helped us bring it down to the top 2 entries, and after a much awaited period, the winners for the #Vote4Children blog-a-thon are announced.
The top 2 entries for the challenge were:
We congratulate the winners for the beautiful posts and thank all those who participated and helped us amplify the voice for India’s children.
Stay tuned for more!
