Design 21, an organization that sponsors design competitions for social good, is hosting a cool contest -- designing a campaign for Millennium Promise. They are asking people to design a new media campaign that makes people aware of the Millennium Development Goals, which, when fulfilled by a set date of 2015 will help end poverty in Africa.
The MDGs are "eight globally-endorsed objectives and targets that both address and seek to eradicate the many dimensions of extreme poverty. To that end, Millennium Promise is working with impoverished communities, national and local governments, and partner NGOs to implement high-impact programs on the continent by engaging donor nations, corporations, and the general public in the effort to end extreme poverty."
You have 28 days left to enter the contest. Not a designer? You can always join the the Millenium Promise cause group on Facebook.
