$5,850 International Writing Contest

The Nuha Foundation is currently hosting an international essay competition for 3 age groups: Adults born before the year 2000, youth born between 2000 and 2003, and young writers born between 2004 and 2008.

The prizes offered include a grand prize for each category, as well as runners’ up prizes.

Writers from anywhere in the world are welcome to enter.

It doesn’t matter whether English is your first, second or even third language: articles will be judged first and foremost on the quality of argument and the originality of ideas. To participate, authors must respond to one of the set topics within the word-limit, by Saturday 13 October 2018 (midnight PST).

Each age category has a different set of topics to choose from.

The grand prize for the adult category is $2,400; youth $900, and young writers $250.

The total prize money offered is $5,850, plus additional prizes available to schools that participate in the program.

The entries may be posted on the contest website; some entries are already available, and can be viewed now.
