Would you like your students to design the play script of a radio programme, showcase their talents and perform a creative English Radio Drama LIVE in front of an audience?

We are extremely proud to write to you and invite your school to participate in our 10th English Radio Drama Competition for Schools in Hong Kong and Macao. We have persevered and this year, we are celebrating our 10th anniversary! Last year, 280 teams from over 90 schools in Hong Kong and Macao participated in our Radio Drama competition. We were overwhelmed by the positive responses from the participating schools.

Through this competition, your students will experience the magic of sound and the creativity of their voices. Students can learn and enjoy the fun of script-writing and acting; they can also develop team spirit, improve English Language skills and build their confidence in expressing themselves. It will certainly be a marvelous learning experience for them.

The participants will be divided into two levels, primary and secondary. The shortlisted teams from each level will be invited to showcase their talents and perform their English Radio Drama LIVE. NO participation fee is needed in this competition, thanks to the generous support from our sponsors, including Educational Testing Service (ETS), BBC China, DYMO/Mimio, KEA Learning International Ltd, NICI and Striking. The final competition and prize-giving ceremony will be held in May 2018.
