To inculcate the habit of reading and writing among the school students, Leaders For Tomorrow Foundation (LFTF) and Voice Of Kids (VoK) is organising an essay-writing contest for school students on the theme of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), according to a press release issued by the organisers.
LFTF is a not-for-profit youth movement while the VoK is a platform for schoolchildren to voice their opinion on important issues.
The competition aims to give the students of classes 8 to 12 an opportunity to voice their ideas and to help work on the social issues that they come across in their day-to-day lives.
The winners will be selected on the basis of understanding of the problem, selection of topic, feasibility of the idea suggested and writing skills.
The students from across the country can register for the competition by March 15, 2021, with the last date for submissions being March 31. The results of the competition will be announced on May 15.
