Essay competition

Thursday, February 10, 2011

THE New Zealand High Commission, in conjunction with the Fiji Association in Auckland Inc, have announced the third year of secondary schools essay competition for senior students.

The High Commission, supported by the Fiji Association in Auckland Inc, has sent details of the competition to secondary schools in Fiji.

The panel of judges is chaired by Dr Satendra Singh, a member of the founding office of the Department of Foreign Affairs after Fiji's independence, and includes Lady Hillary, wife of the late Sir Edmund Hillary.

The two overall winners will receive cash prizes of $1000 each, along with trophies and certificates of commendation, with a total cash prize pool for the competition of $6000.

The adjudicators have praised the efforts of past participants for producing some impressive and well-researched essays.

A statement from the High Commission said this year's competition would provide a further opportunity for senior students to illustrate their writing skills.

Information packs on the essay competition have already been distributed to secondary schools.
