Have chess champion Magnus Carlsen’s moves at the recent World Championship attracted you to this game? Would you like to be in Carlsen’s shoes one day? If yes, then you have a chance to express your thoughts through an essay competition organised by the Norwegian Embassy.
Participants need to send their thoughts in not more than 500 words on ‘How Magnus Carlsen has inspired you by winning the World Championship title at the age of 23’, and ‘What lessons you have learnt from seeing his hard work and dedication to a game that originated in India thousands of years ago.’
Entries should be only in English and typed (not handwritten). Only Indian students between 13 and 15 years can participate. An age certificate from your school is compulsory. Only one entry per student is allowed. Bulk entries from schools will not be accepted.
To participate, candidates must provide their full name, name of their school, address, a passport size photograph and contact details along with their entry. Deadline for submission is January 30, 2014. Results will be announced only to the winners directly, and via the embassy’s website. For details visit www.norwayemb.org.in.
