Grade 12 learners in the Free State are encouraged to enter an essay writing competition, where R100 000 is up for grabs.
This essay competition focuses on the importance and value of education.
Howard Ndaba, spokesperson for the Free State Education Department says the Chinese Consulate General in Johannesburg has launched an essay writing competition for Grade 12 students. The competition is the second annual project under the theme #Driving Education Culture 2.0.
“Consulate General Tang Zhongdong says in honour of Youth Month, this essay writing competition allows South African high school students to demonstrate the depth of their critical thinking skills, creative ideas, and written communication on the theme of education. He says he is excited to see how much talent emerges from this endeavour.”
Students in Grade 12 can write an essay of between 1000 and 1200 words. The topic for the essay is: “What Solutions Can Education and Cultural Exchanges Bring to Strengthen Ties between China and South Africa”.
The deadline for entries is 10 June 10 2022, at 23:59. The top three winners will get the opportunity to meet Consulate General Tang Zhongdong and experience Chinese culture first hand, with the possibility to earn R100 000 in cash rewards.
“The essay must be unique and never been published before. All entries must be typed and submitted in an electronic format using Microsoft Word. The essays should be written in English, and submissions should include a cover letter, with names, full contact information for the entrant, including physical address, phone number, and email address, as well as contact information for the learner’s High School and the parent or guardian. Those who fail to follow these rules will be disqualified,” said Ndaba
