Annual Creative Writing Contest Draws Gripping Prose from Across Pakistan

New deadline poster

EducationUSA Pakistan once again held its annual Creative Writing Contest for students ages 16 to19 this summer. High school students from across the country participated by submitting original works of fiction that began with the following line:

“I pressed the red button and everyone around me lost their memory.”

Over 157 entries were received, and the winners took home certificates and exciting prizes. Contest judges included Embassy Lahore personnel, Fulbright alumni and local writers.

EducationUSA Pakistan holds this contest each year to showcase the talent and creativity of Pakistan’s youth. Even though creative writing skills may not be stressed on in some local schools, this is a vital skill for students who want to pursue higher education in the United States.
