A national essay writing competition against racism will this month encourage young people to prove that the pen is indeed mightier than the sword.
The South African Youth Essay Writing Competition Against Racism is inviting young people between the age categories of 15-25 and 26-35, from across the country, to share their reflections on racism.
There are various grand prizes to be won, which include laptops and cash.
The winning essays will also be published.
The essay writing competition is in collaboration with Khwerha Ye Afrika and the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation and is supported by Department of Arts and Culture, Foundation for Human Rights, Steve Biko Foundation, Spotlight Creations and local organizations.
