Supported by the GREAT Campaign, the award ceremony took place during the English Day held at the Las Condes Cultural Centre.
As a way of positioning English as a second language and promote the British culture in Chile, the British Embassy and the British Chilean Chamber of Commerce’s Committee of Education organised an English Day within the context of the GREAT campaign. The event took place at the Las Condes Cultural Centre.
During the day, prizes were awarded for the ‘Short Stories are GREAT’ contest, which was launched in August and consisted of writing a short story in English of no more than 250 words. Awards were separated into 3 categories:
- school students
- university students
In total, 224 short stories were submitted, and the winners were: Franco Gutiérrez, from Instituto Nacional (school category); Marlén Cabrera, from Universidad San Sebastián (university category); and Catalina Correa (teacher category). All winners received awards donated by Radisson Blu and Loake Shoemakers.
