Compose an article or pen a tale! We have two categories open for writers, so you have NO EXCUSE not to write!

For our Essay category, tell us what you believe to be “The Most Important Leadership Lessons I Learnt In School” if you are between 13 and 17 years old (in 350 to 500 words), or why you think “Volunteering Makes Us Better Leaders” if you are between 18 and 21 years old (in 750 to 1,000 words). You can choose to write in Bahasa Malaysia OR English (but not both in the same essay!).

If you are more creatively bent, then the themes of our Fiction category should set your creative mind spinning! Weave a tale, or many tales if you wish (there is no limit to the number of entries you can send for all our categories). If you are between 13 and 17 years old, your story should revolve around the theme, “Heroism” (in 350 to 500 words). If you are between 18 and 21 years old, entrance us with a story about “Courage” (in 750 to 1,000 words).

We ask that you submit entries that are 100% original. And no swear words or offensive language, please.

All entries have to be submitted via our online submission form in .doc or .docx format.
