Dear Colleague

It is with great pleasure that we announce the fourth annual ‘International Story Competition’ organised and sponsored by the Ulaanbaatar Elite International School, Mongolia. Our International Story Competition has gone from strength to strength. Last year we received more than 300 stories from students of 54 different nationalities attending international schools in over 35 countries. We hope you will join us in making this years competition even bigger.

The competition arose from our desire to recognise outstanding writing achievement by secondary and high school students across the globe. We hope this competiton may benefit student authors by encouraging them to put pen to paper, develop their imaginative talent, hone composition skills, showcase their work and provide an opportunity to earn wonderful prizes.

Please join us in our effort to promote excellence in writing and encourage your students to participate. Each school, participant and their adviser will be issued with a certificate. More information, terms and conditions are available at www.elite.edu.mn or send an email directly to mystory@elite.edu.mn.

The  deadline for uploading submissions is 1st May 2019 with final results anounced on 31st May 2019. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further information or questions. We look forward to receiving your students’ applications.
