Blogging Prizes – English

Welcome to the 2017 edition of NUHA's annual writing competition!

Whether you are from Kiribati or Kenya, Korea, Kyrgyzstan or Kuwait, we want to hear what YOU have to say about 'education'. Absolutely anyone can participate, and three prizes are on offer, together with Matched Prizes for teachers and schools:

Young Writers Prize of up to US$ 250 for those born between 2003 and 2007
Youth Prize of up to US$ 900 for those born between 1999 and 2002
Adult Prize of up to US$ 2400 for those born before 1999.

It doesn't matter whether English is your first, second or even third language: articles will be judged first and foremost on the quality of argument and the originality of ideas. To participate, authors must respond to one of the set topics within the word-limit, by Sunday 22 October 2017 (midnight PST).
