Caribbean Child Research Conference 2011
The Caribbean Child Research Conference gives children and adults researching children's issues the opportunity to present their findings to the region. The 2011 conference will be held from October 19-20 in Jamaica and will consist of three research elements surrounding the theme: Promoting Child Rights with Equity: Our Children in Post-Independence Times.
The first element is an essay competition for primary schools, where students aged 8-12 years are asked to submit an essay answering the question "How can we help to make our school and community peaceful and safe?" The deadline for submission is September 10, 2011.
To be awarded Outstanding Child Researcher, children under the age of 18 years should submit research directly relating to the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and specifically speak to at least one of the three groups of rights: protection, provision and participation. This submission deadline is September 9, 2011.
Abstracts for studies completed within the past three years are currently being accepted, along with a brief biography of the researcher. Details including aims, research questions, methodologies, findings and recommendations should be provided by July 29, 2011.
Further information can be had from Ms. Kimberley Wilson or Ms. Tricia Jack at (876) 927-120/927-1234 or the applicable documents posted to this page.
