This UNICEF website focuses on the 20 year anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The positive and concrete impact the Convention has had, and the challenges that lie ahead for it, can be read about in an assessment by the Chief of the Gender and Rights Unit of UNICEF's Policy and Practice Division, under the link "CRC Turns 20", at the top of the page. The "Oneminutesjr" videos, accessible via a link on the left side of the page, are one minute videos created by kids age 12-20 that address the rights of the child. The videos were part of a contest for the anniversary, and are divided up by topic, such as "Civil Rights and Freedoms", "Health and Welfare", "Protection from Violence and Exploitation", and "Education and Culture". Visitors will also enjoy the photo essays, which are available under the "Multimedia" heading in the lower right hand corner of the homepage. The essays feature photos with a caption of the subjects, as well an article from the convention that illustrates the photo.
