THE English Speaking Union Malaysia (ESU Malaysia), in conjunction with its 10th anniversary, has launched an essay writing competition themed “ESU 10 for 10. English is a winner”.

The competition, in collaboration with Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia. will be open to the public beginning Feb 15.

Cash prizes worth RM18,500 are up for grabs. Participants will be divided into three groups — 10 to 12, 13 to 17 and 18 and above.

ESU Malaysia president Tunku Dara Naquiah hoped participants would write creatively and was looking forward to receiving a variety of submissions with interesting interpretations.

Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia managing director and CEO Osman Morad said, “We believe that mastering the English language is a necessity to move forward in a global economy.

“We are delighted to be given this opportunity to contribute, albeit in a small way, towards this realisation, through the ESU 10 for 10 competition.”

Emphasising on the role that the English language plays in international cooperation and friendship in the global environment, ESU Malaysia has trained and supported Malaysian students who went on to win the ESU International Public Speaking Competition.

Tunku Dara Naquiah hoped the competition would encourage those who were more proficient in writing than in public speaking to participate in the essay writing competition.

All entries must be received by ESU Malaysia by April 15 and the winning essays will be announced on April 27.
