One Heart One Voice
Writing and Video Contest 2024

Do you have a unique story to tell?

Do you have a funny or creative way to tell your story?

We want to hear from you!

Submit your essay, poem or even a video and win attractive prizes! 

Overview of the contest

Signs are all around us. We see many of them all around us and they are important. With signs, drivers know the speed limit and we know which toilets to use!

But there are many signs that we make up on our own too. For example, it rains and you take it as a sign that you need to sleep for another hour on Sunday. 

In this contest, we want to celebrate your creativity and amazing ideas.

You can submit a poem, an essay or even a video based on the topic "It's a sign!" 

You are free to interpret the topic in any way that you wish but you must have the words 'It's a sign!' somewhere in your poem, essay or video. There are also some guidelines to follow so please do take note of them. 

Please be respectful and note that any inappropriate content will lead to your submission being disqualified.
