For the ninth time, we are inviting young people to take part in the competition, the topic of which this time encourages us to look at the tree as a metaphor about our roots and dreams.

Think and do some research – where do my roots go? What do I identify with? What's inside me? Wander through stories and generations, use your imagination in places where nothing is known. Reach the primordial source and imagine that you are rooted in it. What does it mean to you? What gives you strength and power to grow?

Look at the branches leading up to the crown, can you dream? What is your tree buzzing about? Do you feel free? Can each of your branches grow in a different direction, or is it dependent on something? Let your imagination flow into this development.
