Congratulations to Edmund Wu 6B whose fiction was shortlisted by this year's Hong Kong Young Writers Awards (Group 2).
I attended the ceremony today (22 Mar) at the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park's Charles K Kao Auditorium with Edmund and his father. I could see that this competition was managed in a very organized manner and it truly honours the competitors. The atmosphere there was very grand and encouraging.
It is a big achievement in this prestigious competition having been shortlisted. Edmund's work was among the top eight in Fiction Group 2. He received a "Highly Commended" certificate, the official anthology with his work in, and a pen as souvenir.
It was the experience that matters - seeing the professional organizer's handling of the competition and the ceremony truly inspires one to feel that creative writing in English is still being very well respected in Hong Kong.
I hope more students from our school can join this event next year. Good job Edmund, and keep going everyone!
