Essay contests

In our continued efforts to boost reading, writing and speaking, we will again announce essay contests which will centre around specific provided themes.  Entries will then be accepted in written or spoken form and our panellists will act as judges to determine winners based on a particular fixed set of criteria.  The winning entry is then offered a place in the Panel while the top three winners are awarded certificates.
