Taiwan promotes youth trekkers wanted campaign

The Youth Trekkers Wanted Campaign, sponsored by the Ministry of Education’s Youth Development Administration (YDA) in Taiwan, has been pioneering innovative youth travel in Taiwan for over half a decade. Now, the 6th Youth Trekkers Wanted Campaign wants youth around the world to provide creative ideas for a Taiwan youth trek itinerary lasting for at least 10 days. Winners will be eligible for cash incentive awards of US$2,000 - $3,000. Submissions will be accepted until July 14th, 2013 and eligibility is open to all international youth from 18 to 30 years of age.

YDA says that the Youth Trek Wanted Campaign has a strong fan base among international youth travelers, over the past 5 years, nearly 80 winners from around the world have used campaign awards to trek Taiwan and all have put their own creativity and interests to excellent use - creating customized travel itineraries that have built long-lasting ties to Taiwan and its people.

The Youth Trekkers Wanted Campaign sets no boundaries. YDA warmly welcome young, outgoing adventurers to explore Taiwan’s wealth of cultural, natural and social enticements. Applicants should submit the itinerary and completed application by July 14th for a chance to be one of this year’s Youth Trekkers Wanted Campaign winners!
