Hong Kong Young Writers’ Award 2020 – And The Winners Are…

    Thank you for your tremendous support for the Hong Kong Young Writers’ Award.

    We’ve always said that the quality of the work that this award inspires has been extraordinary, and this year is a case in point. Some of the literary writing, in particular, would be impressive coming from adults, let alone from young people.

    Clearly, we cannot organize our usual large gathering this year, nor do we want to put a strain on the printing and logistics industries.

    Yet we do not want the students’ work to be wasted, nor do we want their achievements to go unrecognized. So we are writing to tell you what we are doing to resolve this.

    • The judges have done their work, and their findings will be printed in the online edition of Playtimes magazine, Hong Kong’s leading parenting publication.
    • Certificates for the winners will be sent electronically to the winning schools.
    • The students’ work will be placed in an online anthology at the Hong Kong Young Writers Award website shortly, please check our social media pages for an update.
    • The students who won titles, been short-listed, or received honorable mentions will be identified as such in the online anthology.
    • A joint awards ceremony, celebrating this year’s winners and next year’s, will take place in 2021, so that the winning children will get their moment on the stage and in the spotlight.

    Again, thank you so much for your participation and support for this award and please see the list of winners below.

    Warmest wishes,
