Kaplan Launch Round the World Facebook Photo Competition

Kaplan International Colleges has launched a Facebook photo competition to inspire Carlo Schmid as he attempts to become the youngest person to fly solo around the world.

The competition will see Kaplan’s Facebook fans sending their messages and photos of support to Carlo as he attempts this world record. Fans will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite entry and the photo with the most votes will be declared the winner.

The prize will be a two week Vacation English Course at Kaplan’s English language school in Manchester and the winner will have the opportunity to meet Carlo when he touches down in the city in September.

The Vacation English Course starts at the end of September and includes free homestay accommodation (14 meals provided by the homestay family included) as well as a flight voucher.

Carlo is attempting this world record as a fund raising project for UNICEF. All net income will be donated to UNICEF Switzerland to finance girls’ education projects in India.

Hazel Francis, Kaplan’s Social Media Assistant, said: “We’re honored to be supporting such a good cause. Carlo is a truly inspirational person and I hope the messages of support from our fans will keep him encouraged whilst he flies all over the world! I know the Manchester English School is particularly excited to be hosting him in September and we look forward to meeting him too”

The competition started on July 11th and finishes on July 25th with the winner being announced on Friday 10th August.
