The English Writing Competition finals!
October 7th, 2017
On September 28th, 2017, at the spectacular Museo Recoleta Domínica, the finalists from Category 1 and 2 of the English Writing Competition were invited to create a piece of creating writing inspired by the venue. To do so, a couple of objects from the museum were shown to them, as well as some inspiring locations that could help spark their imagination.
The English Writing Competition allows students to develop their creative writing skills, as well as helping them to structure their thoughts and build an argument in English. The goal is to create a space in which the students can express themselves fluently through written English.
In the first stage of this competition, participants must write an argumentative essay or email. The selected finalists then go on to develop a piece of creative writing, inspired by a site of national heritage such as Recoleta Dominica, the venue for the 2017 final.
The competition attracted entries from more than 200 students and choosing just 20 finalists was a difficult task.
The winners will be announced at the prize-giving ceremony, which will take place at the Recoleta Domínica Museum, Av. Recoleta 683, Santiago, on November 30th.
