      To Whom It May Concern:

      This letter is an invitation to participate in the 4th
      Kosovar and Regional Student Conference about Social
      Issues. This conference—a continuation of the highly
      successful 1st , 2nd and 3rd Conferences about Social
      issues—gathers youth from around Kosova to discuss
      important social issues facing Kosova. Ultimately, the
      3rd Kosovar and Regional Student Conference about
      Social issues aims to bring students from different
      ethnicities together in the effort to:

      • provide an opportunity for the youth to present
      scientific studies in a professional manner.

      • create an environment in which the professional
      exchange of student ideas can occur.

      • create an environment in which youth can engage in
      discussions and debate about issues important to the
      region.

      • generate new ideas and offer potential solutions to
      social issues.

      • encourage youth to be active participants in
      society.

      • build ‘cooperative bridges’ among young people from
      different municipalities and ethnic groups.

      • inform public opinion about issues facing youth and
      the need to solve these problems.


      ASK cordially invites students from high schools
      throughout the region (Kosovo, Serbia, Macedonia,
      Montenegro, and Albania) to participate in this
      conference. It is our hope that students regardless of
      their ethnic, religious, or cultural background will
      gather together and create an environment in which
      participants of the conference can exchange views
      about issues facing society in the spirit of respect
      and cooperation.

      Yes, I Wish to Participate. What does the Conference
      look like?

      Students research any social issue they believe is
      both relevant and pertinent to their society or the
      region. After choosing a topic of research, each
      student/group of students must then write an original,
      well-researched and well-argued research paper
      examining their chosen issue. The final reports will
      then be submitted and reviewed by a panel of experts.
      The panel of experts will select the best reports.
      These reports will then be presented at the
      Conference. The selected students will present in the
      format of a 15 minute presentation. Following each
      presentation 15 minutes will be allotted for
      questions, answers and debate. During each
      presentation there will be simultaneous translation in
      English and Albanian. At the end of the conference,
      students who participated will receive a “Certificate
      of Excellence”. Those who submitted reports but were
      not asked to present will receive a “Certificate of
      Appreciation”.

      The Conference will be held in Prishtina, Kosova, at
      the American School of Kosova. Participants from
      municipalities or countries other than Prishtina will
      be accommodated in the ASK dormitories free of charge.
      ASK will cover both transportation (by bus) and
      accommodation expenses necessary for the participants.
