Let’s Write 2021-2022

About this event

The “Let’s Write” series of projects is focused on the creation of Chinese children’s books in Singapore. It aims to promote Chinese creative work and enrich the selection of Chinese children’s books locally. The first event to launch in schools is the Singapore Creative Story Writing Competition for Primary Students. This competition provides a platform for students to undertake creative writing in Chinese, while encouraging them to think in Chinese and create their own children’s stories. The first edition of the “Let’s Write” Singapore Creative Story Writing Competition for Primary Students will be held in 2021. The prize-winning works stand to be considered for publication as new books for students and become part of the respective schools’ libraries.

The results are finally out!

Due to overwhelming response, the judging process took longer than expected.

We thank all participants and parties involved for your patience and understanding.

To ensure fairness and transparency, entries were subject to a 2-stage blind review process led by a jury consisting of professional editors and educators. The organiser Chou Sing Chu Foundation and the jury team were gratified to see such high-quality entries in the competition. It was very difficult selecting the winning entries, and we hope that those who have not been selected will persevere and continue to do their best. We thank all participants for their support and efforts.

Here are the winners for this year’s Let’s Write Competition School Edition!
