A ceremony for awarding the winners at the National Competition for Creative Writing in English took place on February 16, 2019 at the American University in Blagoevgrad.
Over 4000 students from 173 schools across the country participated in the ninth National Creative Writing Competition in English held in late November 2018.
The Creative Writing Competition in English is organized in Bulgaria for the ninth consecutive year at the initiative of the Corpus Foundation for Education and Development in partnership with the U.S. Embassy and the American University in Bulgaria.
The contest encourages students to use English in a fun way and especially to think non-standard. This year, the topics included in the competition were interesting and provocative to students’ imagination, such as “Where the Ocean Goes”, “A Smiley Distance”, “Life is Short to Bear Boring Clothes,” “The Apple Tree That Did not Stop to Grow” and others.
