Join the Elias Dakila Storywriting Contest

CANVAS, in partnership with Illustrador ng Kabataan (INK) is pleased to launch the Elias Dakila Competition for Children's Storywriting on Environment and Culture.

In 1953, French author Jean Giono was commissioned to write a short story about his most unforgettable character. What resulted was the classic eco-fable The Man Who Planted Trees, which told of the inspiring story of a man who through sheer persistence and diligence, brings hope to a once desolate and devastated province.

That story later moved CANVAS to publish the story of Elias & His Trees, a Filipinized adaptation of Giono's inspiring tale, and now, to work with Illustrador ng Kabataan (INK) in launching the Elias Dakila Competition for Children's Storywriting on Environment and Culture.

This year, the contest seeks to inspire writers to come up with original short stories for children (ages 6-8) that celebrate the environment and/or Philippine culture, and which are suitable as big, read-aloud books ideal for sharing or reading to groups of children.

The winner will receive a P25,000 cash prize. Deadline for entries is 5 pm, Manila time, January 31, 2006.

Hi, Anonymous,

You can open the file in Adobe Reader, which you can download for free from the Adobe website. Anyway, if you still want a word file, I suggest you go to a computer shop and have the rules printed. You may also extract the text using the Adobe Reader or Acrobat. Goodluck!

it would be better for all your "fans" if you'd provide RSS feed subscription. I can't find any such link on this blog. try Feedburner [www.feedburner.com] to set it up...
