The XI edition of "Your Erasmus with ESN" has come to an end. The competition, aimed at promoting the international mobility of deserving university students, saw over 700 participants from universities and training institutions across Italy writing a short essay on the upcoming European elections and the decline in voter turnout. The event took place on July 3rd at 47 locations throughout the national territory. All participants were students who had won a mobility scholarship and competed for 3 scholarships worth €1,000 each, funded by ESN Italy.
The submissions were then reviewed by three committees: a local committee comprised of volunteers from ESN Italy sections, a national committee composed of volunteers from ESN Italy selected by the ESN Italy Board, and an external committee consisting of prominent figures, including Michela Bucci (National Erasmus+ Agency INDIRE), Maria Cristina Pisani (President of the National Youth Council), Carlo Bitetto (CEO GaragErasmus), and Matteo Gori (Secretary General of the European Federalist Youth).
The winners are Teresa Patané (University of Trieste), Elena Cassone (University of Milan), and Allegra Cristofani (University of Trieste). and their compositions can be found here.
