New York Times Winners

Out of over 1200 entries, Valerie Lua and Quoc Thai Kieu’s essays had been shortlisted and published in the final book displaying all of the winning pieces from the New York Times Asia-Pacific writing competition! 

In June 2019, English Language and Literature IB students were set a ‘Be Ambitious’ holiday task to write a piece entitled Our World: 2050 for the New York Times Asia-Pacific writing competition. A lot of distant learning, graduation, and some teary goodbyes to our Year 13s later, I had almost forgotten all about the five entries I had submitted! However, on Vietnam’s Independence Day holiday, I received an email from the New York Times, congratulating all five of our entrants and announcing that two had been shortlisted! Out of over 1200 entries, Valerie Lua and Quoc Thai Kieu’s essays had been shortlisted and published in the final book displaying all of the winning pieces.

NY Times Winners

Both of these students wrote insightful and powerful articles around the overarching title, ‘In an age where unpredictability is the new constant, what can you, the younger generation, do now to shape the future?’ Being shortlisted from so many entrants is a huge accolade in itself, but being published by arguably one of the world’s leading newspapers, is something many people can only ever dream of! Well done to all our Ambitious alumni students who wrote essays for this competition and a huge congratulations to Valerie and Quoc Thai for being shortlisted.
