Young Writers Celebrate Nationís Jubilee

gThe Library Management Company, CIVICA Ltd and the Ministry of Education (MOE) had organised an interschool short story competition. In celebration of Singapore’s golden jubilee, the theme for the book ‘Tales of S’ was ‘Honouring Singapore’s Past’. The competition invited entries from participating primary school, secondary school and junior college students. Our school had successfully participated in last year’s contest and we looked forward to having our stories published this year as well.

Our Library teacher Ms Asmita, briefed us on the theme and encouraged us to conduct research and learn about the past 50 years of Singapore’s history. I have been living in this country for five years now and was keen to discover little known facts from the past that could inform our understanding of the present.

I did most of my research by watching videos and reading well archived digital resources online. My story titled ‘The Scorched Sleep’ revolved around the ‘Spyros’ tank disaster that took place in 1978. Our teachers had the tough task of sifting through the scores of entries to select the final ten. The organisers received 476 entries from 46 schools and soon we received the amazing news that three of our school’s entries would feature in the ebook collection. Mine was one of the winning entries and the other two were ‘A Change for The Better’ by Nikita Vattas (Class 11 A Level) and ‘The Catch’ by Prasha Maithani (Class 11 A Level).

On the 14th of August we were invited to the award ceremony for the winning entries of the ’Tales of S’ book held at Dunman High School. Before the ceremony we were given the task of signing sixty hard cover copies of the book where our stories would be featured alongside fifty other students’ work.

The event commenced with an introduction to the competitions and also speeches by the guests of honour which included the Tampines GRC MP Baey Yam Keng. The winners of the digital story competition ‘50 Years of Remembering Our Pioneers’ were also announced and prizes were awarded. Finally, it was time for the young authors of the ‘Tales of S’ to receive the limited edition autographed print copies and the Young Writer’s Award Certificate. We truly felt like celebrities as we signed books and posed for photographs with the guests of honour. The event marked the realisation of every writer’s dream of getting published and I’m thankful to the organisers and my school for this amazing platform for aspiring authors to showcase their worth.
