  1. This is an excellent initiative.

    Kudos to Wired868, Mr Sean Powder, Mr Earl Best and all the many other individuals who are working both in the forefront and behind-the-scenes to make this noble enterprise an outstanding success.

    The nation owes all of you a debt of gratitude. Your patriotism is beyond question.

    • Thanks for your support Louis. As Sean has said, we do not necessarily want brilliant writers. We want students to push themselves and try to be creative. Enjoy the challenge and leave the rest to our judges.
