Child soldier contest

4th September 2009 at 01:00
Secondary school students will have the chance to publish poems, stories, or essays exploring the issue of child soldiers in a writing competition run by the Human Rights Watch London Network

Right Words is the network's second annual writing competition run to help young people reflect on the phenomenon of child soldiers. Entrants are invited to submit pieces of work in one of three categories: a poem, a story, or a "point of view" essay. The entries will be judged by a distinguished panel of writers, journalists, and human-rights experts including Sudanese musician and former child soldier Emmanual Jal. Selected entries in each category will be published in an anthology early in 2010.
