On May 12, 2018, The 24th Sookmyung Girls’ High School Literary Award Ceremony was held in the Han Sang-eun Lounge in Centennial Hall. It was the award presenting ceremony for the literary writing contest that was held on April 28. The contest has been held annually since 1995, and it aims to discover and foster talented female high school students as well as promote Sookmyung Women’s University. At the award ceremony, Professor Kang Mi-eun who is in charge of Sookmyung News presented winners with their awards. The award was divided as detail, poem, essay, and conte. Kang also gave a congratulatory message to all awardees. After presenting awards, judges gave a speech which include commentary of entries. After taking a group photo, the ceremony ended with a light meal. Choi Seojung, staff and planner of The 24th Sookmyung Girls’ High School literary award writing contest, said “It was an honor to plan and organize the nationwide event. I worried that many participants found it hard to locate Centennial Hall for the award ceremony due to construction site. Thankfully, though, the ceremony was a success. I hope that next year’s 25th contest goes just as well.” Additionally, Kim Seoyean, Suhmoon Girls’ High School student and winner of conte field said, “I participate in the contest because The Sookmyung Girls’ High School Literary Award Writing Contest is well-known and just participating is of great significance to those interested in literary creation. The contest location and facilities were ideal for writing, so I was able to concentrate on my writing. I have no regrets about joining the contest, and I’m proud to receive an award for something I did my best on. I would like to thank the organizers of the The 24th Sookmyung Girls’ High School Literary Award Writing Contest for providing all of us such a great opportunity.” The Sookmyung Girls’ High School Literary Award Writing Contest is a valuable contest and it helps promote Sookmyung. Sookmyungians, be proud of it, and keep your eyes on to this event.
