YALS 2016 Literary & Multimedia Competition

Reported by Mirjana Ljiljak-Vukajlović

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:
