World Bank & Financial Times’ Blog Writing Competition 2022 on ‘How Can We Improve Education’: Submit by Jan 31

How can we improve education? Answers in the form of submissions are invited for the World Bank and Financial Times’ Blog Writing Competition 2022.

About World Bank

The World Bank is an international financial institution that provides loans and grants to the governments of low- and middle-income countries for the purpose of pursuing capital projects.

It comprises two institutions: the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), and the International Development Association (IDA). The World Bank is a component of the World Bank Group.

About Financial Times

The Financial Times is a daily newspaper printed in broadsheet and published digitally that focuses on business and economic current affairs. Based in London, England, the paper is owned by a Japanese holding company, Nikkei, with core editorial offices across Britain, the United States and continental Europe. 

About the Competition

The World Bank Group and the Financial Times are organizing their 4th joint global blog/essay writing competition. This competition builds on the World Bank Group’s recent reports Realizing the Future of Learning and Reimagining Human Connections.


The COVID-19 pandemic changed education for students and teachers everywhere. Almost all schools had to close for months.  And ready or not, students – along with teachers and families – discovered that education was suddenly possible only through remote learning.

In many places schools have moved to reopen, sometimes through a combination of face-to-face classes and learning from home.  Everyone is now at some stage of getting back to normal – even if it’s a completely “new” normal.

So now, the big question for all of us is:

What lessons have we learned to improve teaching and learning?

  • What insights from your experience during the COVID-19 pandemic do you think would improve education and learning?
  • What should educators and policymakers do differently, including by leveraging technology and changing teaching methods?

They are looking for your most inventive ideas, high-quality writing, and innovative solutions that would strengthen education going forward.

The entries will be judged by a high-level panel of senior officials from the World Bank, Financial Times, and our partners.

You could win a chance to be published in the Financial Times and the World Bank Blogs!

Submissions should include:

  • A strong blog or essay: No longer than 500 words.
  • Your name, age, school, email, and country you live in.
  • Optional: Photos, videos, visualizations that help support your story

Who can Participate?

Participants must be enrolled in high school or a version of secondary education and should be between the ages of 15-19 years at the time of submission.
