Welcome to the 2018 edition of NUHA's annual writing competition!
Whether you are from Ghana or Georgia, Greece, Guam or Guyana, 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:
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 Saturday 13 October 2018 (midnight PST).
