    Hi International Coordinators,
    I’ve been asked an interesting question, and I would like your help in answering it. Here goes: We have had a great deal of interest in the Write On! Competition in Armenia. So I received a call from an Armenian teacher today, who teaches 9th, 10th, 11th graders at the International school in Yerevan. She would like to know if her students are eligible to participate? Are there restrictions on who can participate? I don’t really remember seeing anything. Please let me know as soon as possible.

  5. Hi! I’m just want to ask whether who or what organization or school shall be hosting the competition in the Philippines for this upcoming year. Thank you!! :)

  6. I would like to be involved as a Peace Corps Volunteer!

  8. What do the winners get?Is there any prize?

  9. Hello! My name is Anxhela Doko from Fier, Albania. I’ve been participateing in the Write On Competition since i was in the 6th grade. I have taken many certificates awards and look forward participateing in the competition every year. This year I won the first national place for the 9th graders. I took the national certificate and I am very grateful. But a few weeks after the announcement of the national winners I discovered that i was also the winner of the first place for the international competition. I asked the missionaries if I was going to get anything as a international winner and they replied negatively. I understand but the school of my dreams(a middle school, the best of my city) has offered me a scholarship if a have something to prove my wining(for example a winner certificate) because it is a very expensive school which doesn’t just gives aways scholarships based on Facebook statuses announcing winners. I understand if this is too much to ask but of you could just provide me a document as a winner certeficate I would be sooooo GRATEFUL. I look forward for your reply. Sincerely yours, Anxhela Doko.

    Please let me protest about the results of Beni Mellal’s write on competition/
    The winners in the professional level are all of them students regularly inrolled in the english department, and preparing their BA and MA certificates.
