Announcing "GOING For A GLOBAL TRUCE" PEACE CONTEST. Open To All Youth Under 21 and All Adults Over 21 From Anywhere Around The World! Post Your Response Here In A Reply To This Website!

I am making a personal effort to help promote peace by creating my own peace contest called the "Going for A Global Truce Peace Contest".  There is no fee to enter or win.  

 

All youth under 21, and all adults over 21 are eligible to participate.  

 

To enter you may just respond right through this website by writing, attaching video, a file or sending a link to your efforts at helping the "Going For A Global Truce" Peace Effort.

Please write, pray and say: "May Peace Prevail On Earth and Let It Beging With Me!" and enter your non-violent plan to help peace to prevail on Earth into this contest and help make your plan come into action.  

 

THERE IS NO LINK TO THE CONTEST WEBSITE. THIS IS THE CONTEST WEBSITE! 

 

Please indicate what you are doing to help the world become a more peaceful place, and to help move the world in a direction of a global truce.  Please see my own contest entry at http://goingforaglobaltruce.com/  I thought of this whole proposal and organized a Going For A Global Truce Peace Political Party in a response to this contest. Think big! If humanity is ever going to end all war on Earth will need a peaceful, nonviolent plan and a peaceful and nonviolent road-map. Please ask your self what are the steps needed to achieve a global truce and a global cease fire?  Then write them down step by step and develop a nonviolent plan to carry the nonviolent plan out. You never know.  We may achieve a global truce in part by someone following one of the ideas they read in your plan. 

Please specify in the first sentence of your response if you are under or over 21.  Any entrant that does not specify which age category they are in will be judged as an adult thus will be competing with the adults for the prize(s).

 

Any entry that promotes violence, war, pornography, drug use, uses obscenities or is derogatory to any group, race, religion, or country will have their entry disqualified and their entry will be deleted from the website.  

 

Please refrain from comments that might offend or harm anyone reading your entry.  We want to refrain from triggering discord in our contest for global truce and peace.

 

These guidelines are very important in maintaining this contest to be welcoming to all people wishing to find a path to global truce. Contestant's responses should be positive reinforcements of our peace effort rather than finger-pointing or blaming.

 

The purpose of the contest is to promote peace, healing and positive steps in the right direction toward peace and a global truce.

 

The contest ends on Sept 01, 2012. The winner(s) will be officially announced and the prize(s) will be awarded on 9/21/12 Global Truce Peace One Day.  

 

Any entries submitted after 9/01/12 may also be considered eligible for 9/21/2012 award or they may be placed for consideration for next years contest.  

 

If too many responses come in at the last minute it may be difficult to get through them all by 9/21/12 so please submit your responses as early as possibly.

 

All accepted responses will remain on this site available to be viewed by anyone coming to this site through the internet.

 

As the idea of calling for a global truce becomes more widespread someone may wish to reprint or publish some or all of the responses individually or as a collection of Global Truce Ideas. Thus by entering the contest you give permission for your work to be read by members of the Peace and Collaborative Development Network and others, copied, printed, reprinted or published.

 

I suggest anyone wishing to publish any of the entries found in this contest ask for permission of the writer of that work before publishing any material from this contest.  

 

Any person may enter the contest as often as you like. Please write about something new or about some other peace initiative, event or activity you are involved with or peace building service you are providing. You may also enter any type of response,  a poem,  short story or song you wrote about the theme of peace or Global Truce.  

 

Please do not just reenter the same submission more than once or slightly modify a submission that was previously submitted.  

 

A new entry should demonstrate an additional undertaking that you are working on to help promote the idea of and possibility of achieving global truce and world peace.

 

I  would love contestants to submit stories about your involvement in global peace education classes, global peace organizations, the global peace organizations that you are planning to start in the future or have already started.

 

Please discuss your ideas about how humanity will get to a global truce and how you are helping move humanity in that direction.

 

Contestants may write about a job that you had or plan to promote peace.  You may write about a non profit organization or a for profit business enterprise that you are planning to start or have started which will promote peace, global truce and global cease fire.  Writing about attaining peace on any level will be accepted for consideration in this contest as adding to the peace adds to the sum total of peace on Earth. Please write about how saying the prayer "May Pleace Prevail on Earth and Let It Begin With Me" empowers you.  

 

You may discuss and submit a video that you may have uploaded onto You Tube or song that you wrote or sang about peace and global truce.

 

You may write about what you did to promote world peace and the concept of global truce through the use of the the internet, in person or even about the research you have undertaken in the area of global truce and peacemaking.  

 

You may discuss documentaries about peace that you have watched and how they have inspired you into action toward achieving global truce and Peace.    

 

I am very flexible. Anyone can win. Anyone under 21 and any one over 21 can enter anything thing you like related to your efforts and aspirations toward Going for a Global Truce and peace.

 

Please do not give any contact information in your response other than your name.  I will reply to you through this website if you are one of the winners. IF you are selected I will get information from you as to how to send your prize and winner's certification to you. 

 

Other Members of the Peace and Collaborative Development Network may benefit by reading all the contestants entries.  

 

We may learn something from each others experiences. You are also encouraged to read other contestant's responses and other PCDN members websites as well.

 

You can network with other members of PCDN if you like.  Good ideas for global truce and peace will spread globally!

 

I will contact the winners by replying to them through this site on 9/21/12 the International Day Of Peace.  Every one in the Peace and Collaborative Development Network may see all of the contestants and winners responses too.

 

Anyone from the Peace and Collaborative Network may share their opinion as to who they feel is the best candidate to be selected as a winner and why. 

 

All entrants will receive a thank you certificate acknowledging their entry in the "Going for Global Truce" Peace Contest.  

 

All winners will get a winners certificate and be recognized by me in an announcement blog that I will write for the Peace and Collaborative Development Network as well as the cash prize and possibly more.  

 

As more people are inspired to get involved with this Going for Global Truce Peace Contest, begin to take more actions toward attaining a global truce and peace and write about their real accomplishments they will be making toward achieving this goal I will be working to find more and more people willing to award prizes to additional winners of their choosing or to winners that I select.

 

As more and more people see that the contest is actually effective at inspiring global truce and peace activities they will be inspired to support the effort more.  Each may inspire the other to do more.

 

Together we may be able to come up with the plan to have a global truce called for and ratified by all nations in a Pact For Global Peace,  Permanent Cease Fire and A Permanent Truce in the United Nations.  

 

There already is a pact still in effect renouncing war signed by many countries in 1928 called the Kellogg Briand Pact. Humanity signed the pact after WW1 but lost their way and got into WW2.  We have to "Go Back To The Pact" now before we get into WW3.  Can you inspire world leaders to go back to the pact and renounce war again? 

 

Another process of securing peace is to help humanity overcome our addictions to war, fighting, and other vices leading us to conflict and tragedy. 

 

How can you help humanity overcome its addiction to fighting?

 

How can we actually have an impact on the people in power and inspire them to make reforms needed to improve the world?

How does humanity  provide the counselling needed to the world to help them coexist on this planet without killing one another? 

 

This contest is for you to help inspire humanity find its way to peace before we unleash humanity's most destructive wars in the future.

 

We are in this together.  We have to find a way to stop fighting.  We are one human family having ongoing family feuds.

 

We need to set up the infrastructure so that we can have grievances heard and addressed. We need to ask ourselves is it worth it if we lose all that is beautiful in the world to war. 

 

Anyone wishing to enter the contest may do so.

 

Anyone wishing to offer a prize to honor a person doing great work in the field toward achieving peace and global truce may do so as well.  

 

Anyone may select an additional winner of their own preference and inform me which person they select and the prize they are offering to that person as a token of their appreciation for their effort as peace. 

 

You never know where winning this contest may take the world!  We may have many winners and higher prizes.  

 

Please check this site periodically for changes or updates that will be posted.

Best wishes to you in your peace efforts.  

Together we can can change the world! 

 

Each entry will be read, listen to or watched.  

 

I will select at least one winner from each category and give at least one winner in each group (under 21, and over 21) at least $180.  If I see an interest in this contest I will seek more donations from many individuals, corporations and foundations to offer larger prizes to more and more people.  Any individual or organization may apply.  There is no fee to enter.  You may inform me if you prefer your prize money to be awarded to you directly, to your organization or to be donated in your name to an official non profit charity of your choice.
