We are pleased to announce the eighth edition of the American Chamber of Commerce Student Essay Contest, with a grand prize of $500 USD for the best essay, and 3 runner-up prizes of $150 USD each. The contest is open to high school students affiliated with your companies. Each member company must choose one essay and submit it to AmCham to compete for the grand prize.
The essays will be judged blindly by an Awards Committee made up of Board of Directors and AmCham Members. The winner will be invited to our Annual General Meeting on December 8, 2014 at the Regent Hotel to read the essay.
Rules and details are in the attached form. Deadline for submission to AmCham is 5:00 p.m. on November 24, 2014.
We encourage you to seek out students within your companies and give them an opportunity to compete.
