The 2018 Creative Writing competition had the overarching theme of showcasing the very best of what students can do whilst also aligning it to the Global Campus objectives of developing global citizenship and global mindedness, in line with UNICEF's Sustainable Development Goals. In asking our students to write about these themes, we encouraged them to think about what kind of world they want to inherit in the future.
The competition was split into 3 age categories: 8-11 years old, 11-14 years old and 14-18 years old. From the entries submitted by our budding writers here at BIS HCMC, 3 of our authors were shortlisted to appear in this year’s published anthology:
- Ryan Lower, Age 10 - Down in the Dumps
- Raghav Dwivedi, Age 11 - The Night Shift
- Amber Jarigsma, Age 17 - Convergence
Raghav, our seasoned writer here at BIS HCMC, was also selected and recognised for his outstanding entry, winning the ‘Highly Commended’ award for his age category.
Our sincere congratulations go out to Ryan, Raghav and Amber for this wonderful achievement.
