They won the drawing and writing contest organised by the EU institutions, in partnership with the European Youth Forum, on the occasion of the award of the Nobel Peace prize to the EU.
"Peace, Europe, Future: What does Peace in Europe mean to you?" This was the question put to young people from the EU and acceding or candidate countries aged between 8 and 24.
The contest attracted close to 5 400 applications, from 33 countries: 1 173 drawings for the age group 8-12, 1 870 texts for the age group 13-17 and 2 354 texts for the age group 18-24.
The four winners are invited by the Presidents of the European Council, the European Commission and the European Parliament to be part of the official delegation of the European Union that is travelling to Oslo to receive this year's Peace Prize. They will attend the official ceremony on 10 December as well as the Nobel Peace Prize concert on 11 December.
