SECONDARY school students are being encouraged to enter the 2014 Secondary School Essay Competition organised by the New Zealand High Commission and Fiji Association in Auckland (Inc).
This year students are to write on the subjects — Fiji, 10 years from now or contemporary links in culture between Fiji and New Zealand.
The competition is in its sixth consecutive year
"The topics will allow young Fijians to be creative and think about their future and explore contemporary cultural links between Fiji and New Zealand," said New Zealand High Commission acting head of mission Mark Ramsden.
The High Commission increased the total pool prize to $8500 with top 25 winners to be selected from schools Fiji wide.
Essays must be submitted through the school that the competition entrant attends.
The closing date for entries is May 28.
