International Women's Day competition opens

To celebrate International Women's Day, the British Embassy in Seoul and the Korea JoongAng Daily are holding a writing competition through March 8.  
The contest is limited to female entrants from 14 to 18, and the question for the essay is: "If you could be an ambassador for a day, how would you use your power and influence to make a positive change in society?"
Submissions should be no longer than one page and can be written in Korean or English. They should be sent to with the following information: the student's name, date of birth, phone number and school name.
The top 2 winners’ prize consists of shadowing the British Ambassador for a day at the British Embassy, with 8 runners up being given the chance to participate in a Model UN competition in Seoul.
The rules of participation in the Ambassador for a Day campaign are as follows:
- Winners must be available to travel to Seoul on 16 March 2022 for first prize, and 22 March 2022 for second prize.
- Winners must have a chaperone, who is over 21 years old (parent, teacher, guardian) in order to travel to Seoul in March 2022.
- The winners as well as their chaperones must have valid ID.
- Winners agree to be photographed and/or filmed during public engagements within the Ambassador for a Day campaign in order to promote the initiative provided that the photos/videos do not prejudice their dignity and reputation.
