Storytelling Contest

August 2, 2013

Before we get to the announcement, here are some photos from the last contest we hosted on May 25, 2013. Our contestants really showed off their storytelling skills in this round, delivering their stories with humor and , but, even more impressively, it was all original content. And we have our first ever female contest winner. A big congratulations to Floriane Niyungeko! Her story “Fighting for Your Respect” took first place and for that, Floriane won a radio, a grammar book and an Imagine Burundi t-shirt – all essential materials for English-learning. You can read Floriane’s story and other prize-winning entries from previous contests on our new The Contests page. We will also post photos from past contests along with other details there. Thank you to Floriane, all our contestants and the supportive audiences who cheered them on! Excellent job, team!
