SCEN Competition 2015 Winners
23 January 2015
You will remember that the SCEN Competition invited our young people to write an article entitled:
- Why all Scottish students should have the opportunity to learn Chinese
We had a very healthy range of entries in both the Senior and the Junior categories! Congratulations to all those who took part. I hope you will share your arguments with as many people as you can. School newsletters, debates, assemblies, for instance?
I am delighted to let you know that the Senior Prize in the SCEN Competition 2015 has been awarded to:
Joanna Martin, S4, Queen Anne High School, Dunfermline
The Junior Prize has been awarded to:
Lily Penman, P7 (the Geits), The Edinburgh Academy
The Judging Panel were:
- Kenneth Roy, Editor, The Scottish Review
- Simon Macaulay, SCEN Field Worker and Chairman of the National Languages Working Group
- Dr Judith McClure, Convener of SCEN
Joanna will receive a cheque for £250 and her article will be
published in The Scottish Review, probably in
February. I shall let you know when.
Lily will receive a cheque for £100 and her article will be published in a SCEN update.
There will be a SCEN Board Meeting and Network Meeting on 13 May in Edinburgh, at which our President, Lord Wilson, would like to congratulate Joanna and Lily. I shall be in touch soon about that.
