We always give this competition plenty of time for entrants to write and send in their entry. Don’t leave it too late though, and miss the deadline. Get working on your entry today. The theme is ‘Peace’ and in today’s world there’s plenty of scope to find a story within our theme. We all want a peaceful world and umoja is all about unity and peace. The small entry fee goes directly to the Umoja Orphanage Kenya Project.
If you would like to help us promote the competition please download the flyer and distribute where you can, your school, university, workplace, gym, library, local book store – anywhere you may find writers. Thank you in advance.
The 2014 Umoja Writing Competition (raising sponsorship funds for volunteering to ‘Raise the Roof’ in Kenya for the Umoja Kenya Orphanage Project).
Part proceeds will be donated directly to the project and part to sponsorship, so all competitors will not only be able to produce a piece of writing they are proud enough to enter the competition with, but also know that entry fees are going to an extremely worthy cause.
