World Food Day

World Food Day Poster contest (Age 5-19)

We’re calling on children and teens all over the world, from age 5 to 19, to use their imagination and create a poster that illustrates their idea of what needs to be done to make healthy diets available for everyone and how each of us can improve our diets. Young minds will be inspired by our World Food Day Activity Book that shows why healthy eating matters and how everyone can come together and take action to achieve better nutrition and #ZeroHunger.

Take a photo or scan your poster and submit your entry by filling out the form on our website. The deadline is 8 November 2019.

Three winners in each age category will be selected by our jury and announced here in December. Winners will be promoted by FAO offices around the world and receive a surprise gift bag and Certificate of Recognition.

To participate, you must be age 5 - 19. The deadline for entries is 8 November 2019.

Our International Jury is now busy selecting the top 15 posters in each age category. The 60 shortlisted entries will be announced here soon.

And governments can’t do it alone - everyone has a role to play. Discover a world of healthy diets and nutritious food and find out what each of us -governments, farmers, businesses and the general public- have to do to reach this goal??

Learn how you can become part of the Zero Hunger Generation!
