Deadline for submission is 31 March 2020

Dubai – United Arab Emirates, 24 February 2020 – Emirates Post announced that participants can now start sending their submissions for the 49th UPU annual letter writing competition for schoolchildren aged between 10 and 15 years, under the new 2020 inspirational theme “Write a message to an adult about the world we live in”. 

Organized by Emirates Post as part of the United Postal Union's global initiative, a United Nations body that oversees the world's post, the prestigious competition aims to encourage youth to enhance their writing skills and ability to clearly express their thoughts by introducing them to the art of letter writing. 

Commenting on the competition, Yousuf Mohd Siddiq Alkhaja, Chief Business Officer – Retail of Emirates Post said: “As supporters of local talent and advocates of creativity, Emirates Post is proud to be part of an initiative that ignites the passion for writing in the hearts of young people in the country, stimulates their intellect, educates them on the importance and rich history of written letters, and sheds light on the importance of postal services in our lives.”

Emirates Post has invited schoolchildren to participate in the competition by submitting a 500-1000 words letter in English or Arabic by the 31st of March 2020. Based on international evaluation standards, three national winners will be selected from all the submissions, with the letter of the first-place winner representing the UAE at the international round of the competition alongside other winners from around the world. The three national winners will receive their prizes on the annual World Post Day celebration.  

The conditions of the competition include that the letter is recent, not previously published, and that three copies be submitted, one handwritten and two electronic versions (one in WORD format, the other in PDF).
