Food and Agriculture Organization of The United Nations is 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 Zero Hunger. Young minds can be inspired by the World Food Day Activity Book that explains what Zero Hunger is all about, and how everyone needs to come together and take action to reach this global goal.

The competition is divided into the following categories: 5 to 8, 9 to 12, 13 to 15, and 16 to 19 and three winners in each age category will be selected by the jury and announced in December. Winners will be promoted by FAO offices around the world and receive a surprise gift bag and Certificate of Recognition. They will also feature in an exhibition at FAO headquarters in Rome.
