In August this year, Hope Library organized an inter school Annual Short Story Competition. The dates fixed were between the first and the last Friday of August. We thought that any creative process should not be rushed through harsh deadlines. So we ensured ample of time for school children to lay back, think and write their best.
We received an overwhelming response, and it was no easy task to judge the best entry.
The chief objective of setting up this competition was to create a platform for budding writers to showcase their talent. The entries were judged on four broad parameters. Originality, presentation, vocabulary and freshness of content. It is on the basis of this criteria we concluded our decision on the winner of this competition.
Simranjeet Kaur's The Car Accident is this year's winner of our Short Story Competition. She is from Guru Nanak International School, B.R.S. Nagar, Ludhiana
Kritika from Sacred Heart Convent School, Sarabha Nagar has bagged the second position.
At the third place is Kashish Batra from Sacred Heart Convent School, B.R.S. Nagar, Ludhiana.
I would like to congratulate all the winners on behalf our team at Hope Library. The winning entries will be posted at this blog along with other notable entries.
We also, analyzed all our favorite entries further to judge which school sent us the best entries. Guru Nanak International Public School, BRS Nagar, Ludhiana came out to be the clear winner, with some amazing stories by its students.
To compete is a glory in itself, even if you are not the winner. To appreciate the original entries sent to us by students, we would be sending certificate of participation to their respective schools. We would also be extending a special discount of 25 percent on all our library services for participating students.
We would also like to place on record, our thanks to Sigma Agro Industries Private Limited for providing us with print support for this competition.
Looking forward for your participation the next edition of Annual Short Story Competition
