As I wrote on Gender Equality I, I began publishing some thematic posts about Gender Equality until March 7, 2011.
Today, my post is about the "European drawing competion to reward girls' creativity about the future technologies." announced by the National Innovation Office (Hungary), the European Commission’s Directorate General for Information Society and Media (DG INFSO) and the European Centre for Women and Technology (ECWT) under the Hungarian EU Presidency 2011.
The aim of the competition was to encourage creativity in the field of new technologies and highlight the importance of developing innovative skills at an early age.
Girls aged 6-16 from all schools in the 27 EU member states could participate in the competition. There was two age categories: one for 6-12 and another for 13-16 years old girls.

Entries could focus on two issues:
• What would be interesting or fun to do on your computer / Internet that you cannot do right now?
• What type of new ICT (information and communication technology) tool would you like to see to help you and your family’s life?
The deadline of submission was 20th February 2011. And the winners and runners up of the competition have been informed by the organizers the 25th February. Read more here
