Picking the winners for our October Best of the Month Awards was no easy task, as we received so many thoughtful submissions last month. After taking a thorough look at what we have published, we are happy to announce the winners.

Revisit our September picks here!

Best Letter

Bernize Lin Lok-yiu from Valtorta College made it clear in her letter to us that she is a fan of the boy band Mirror. She impressed us with her warnings to other Mirror fans about the dangers of being too irrational.

Beatrice Villaflor from Nord Anglia International School Hong Kong’s letter to Hollywood about Asian representation is spot on, and she backed up her opinion with some excellent and well-researched facts.

Best Face Off

Clarisse Poon from St Paul’s Co-educational College won this award for her piece arguing why Hong Kong should reopen its border with mainland China. Her arguments are convincing and she used comments from health experts to show why her idea would work.

Hey winners, you have a prize coming your way!

Most Creative

Joey Wong Wing-yi from CCC Heep Woh College has a blunt message about the one thing that teenagers do better than adults. We feel you, Joey.

Most Engaged School

Fung Kai No 1 Secondary School is, without a doubt, the winner of our Most Engaged School award. Dozens of students from this school submitted their work to our Top 10, Show Off and Your Voice pages, and many of them were published.

Congratulations to our October winners! Each of them will receive a certificate and a special YP notebook to encourage them on their writing journeys. We will contact the winners about delivering their prizes.

November’s winners will be announced in December – be sure to keep an eye out.
