The National Essay Contest of Macedonia, now in its seventh year, is a joint venture organized by the United States Peace Corps volunteers in collaboration with ELTAM (English Language Teachers Association of Macedonia) and SEEU (South East European University). The goals of the essay contest are to raise awareness throughout Macedonia about the importance of writing, motivate students to create thoughtful English essays as well as support teachers in their ability to teach essay writing. Students from 7-12th grade in all regions of Macedonia are encouraged to participate. Winners are chosen on three levels both regionally and nationally. Each year members of our vast network of PCVs are recruited to help as national coordinators, workshop trainers, and judges.
