HIP StoryFest 2023 English Competition wraps up with record entries!
We're happy to announce that we have concluded the most successful eKelas HIP StoryFest English Competition to date on 7th August, with over 8,000 submissions from students nationwide. These young storytellers showcased their enthusiasm to share their unique perspectives on the topics of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) which was the theme of this year's competition.
The competition culminated in an exciting virtual finale, attended by key representatives from the Ministry of Education, where we announced the 70 winning students who hailed from across 8 states!
