Winners of YALS 2017 Literary & Multimedia Competition

Reported by: Mirjana Ljiljak-Vukajlović

This year too, in the month of April, YALS organized its traditional literary and multimedia competition for young students of its member schools at all levels. The general theme for multimedia creations was My Free Time Activities, while the topics for literary works were as follows:

A1 – My Favourite Animal
A2 – I love Summer
B1 – A story ending in “And then I heard a knock at the door…“
B2 – A letter to the teacher – Do you agree that students should wear school uniforms?
C1 – An essay on Online Shopping and the End of the High Street Shop
C2  – A letter to the editor on a problematic situation and how to deal with it

We had such an incredible group of contestants this year and thought that all are worthy of award recognition. YALS Jury, consisting of Coordinator Danijela Veljković,  from Penguin School, Jagodina, Dijana Kisić, Big Bird School, Belgrade, and Eva Bako, Blue Moon, Kula, had a difficult task of determining who would receive the prizes from YALS, so in many cases there are multiple winners.

As in the previous competitions, YALS will publicly praise the most successful authors and publish their works on its web site. The winners will also be awarded books and other surprise prizes.

Here are their masterpieces:

The traditional YALS Literary Competition, accompanied with a parallel contest in multimedia project work, was held this year in April. Over 70 students from YALS member schools all over Serbia took part in the competition and the winners were officially announced on 26 April.

In the category of literary works, students were invited to write on themes set by language proficiency levels (A1 to C1), and the contestants in the multimedia category were asked to send a contribution on the general topic of “Me and My World“ in diverse formats – electronic posters and mental maps, slide presentations, oral presentation videos and – for the first time this year – electronically published Lego stories.

The contributions on the set topics were of the highest possible quality and it was not at all an easy task for the jury consisting of Dijana Kisić from Big Bird School, Belgrade, Eva Bako, Blue Moon, Kula, and Mirjana Ljiljak-Vukajlović, Lingva, Valjevo to choose the best ones.
As in the previous competitions, YALS will publicly praise the most successful auhors and publish their works on its web site. The winners will also be awarded books and other surprise prizes.

Here are the names of this year’s winners and links to both literary works and multimedia projects:
