We are absolutely thrilled to announce the results of the 2017 Voices of Future Generations writing contest from Asia! We received many wonderful entries, and the judges wish to commend all of the children who put pen to paper about issues that really matter to them. Well done, everyone!
This year's Gold winner is Yun-Hung Huang, age 10, who studies at the New Taipei Municipal Zhong-Zheng Elementary School in Taiwan. The story "Small Sparrow, Great Hero" really touched the judges and they were very inspiring to read about one little bird being able to enact so much change with its passion!
Congratulations, Yun-Hung, on winning the Gold prize! The Voices of Future Generations International Commission look forwards to working with you, to form your story into a book that fits the global series.
