This compilation contains five winning entries from two Baker Institute Center for Health and Biosciences 2015 student competitions. For the first competition, students submitted essays full of creative ideas for raising awareness of neglected tropical diseases around their campuses and communities. For the second competition, students created outreach projects to help describe these complex issues to young children.
English and Spanish translations of the winning essays may be found in the first set of PDFs below (BI-pub-NTDChallenge-092515, and BI-pub-NTDChallenge-061516-Spanish). The second set of PDFs (BI-pub-NTDOutreach-092515 and BI-pub-NTDOutreach-062216-Spanish) contain the full student outreach project, a sixth grade educational student role-play activity.
