KYKY writing competiton - Back to the Future

 

To celebrate the school’s 75th anniversary, the parents association, KYKY are sponsoring a writing competition with the theme Back to the Future - Paluu tulevaisuuteen. Students can compare the school 75 years ago with today or predict what the school will be like in the year 2090. There is a free choice of title, you may write in English or Finnish but the piece of work cannot be something already published.

The text, which should not exceed 12000 marks including spaces, must be submitted by the 16.03.2015 and placed into the letter box outside the teachers room in an envelope marked KYKY ry. . In order for KYKY to mark the essays fairly, write a ‘made up’ name on the text and then in a different envelope indicate who the real author is (‘made up’ name = real name) and include your e-mail address and telephone number. The entries will not be returned so please keep your own copy.
