Hello, fellow students from Vilnius Jonas Basanavičius! Our school’s newspaper got a letter from the U.S. Embassy, that offered some special things for us. Today, we will go over what those things are.
The U.S. Embassy is very interested in our project and that our articles directly relate to the themes of their mission.
Because of that, they have several suggestions for our team:
1. They would like to offer to pay for any events that they organize\present, for example – they are currently organizing a tour of street dance group Soul Street Dance from Houston, U.S. who will perform in LOFTAS on March 23 (this performance is free). They welcome us to this event, and will inform us more when it’s time for the group’s visit, as well as other projects that might interest us.
2. A SPECIAL CONTEST!
Our newspaper’s writers or their English studying friends, who don’t necessarily write everyday, would make an article about the climate change and environmental protection, dedicated to the Earth Day, April 22. People who decide to contribute to this project should link\make a reference of some kind to Lithuania. The U.S. Embassy will read their articles, select three best ones, which they would also publish on their social media!!! 😀 😉 😀
Let US know what you think of their projects, as well as if you’re going to enter the contest!
Summed up, on or around April 22, they would be happy to invite all the writers from The VOICE, as well other students who write from J. Basanavičius (max 30 people), to visit the Embassy, where the authors of three best articles would be awarded with books and special Embassy prizes.
Finally, they also wondered if our team would be interested in teaming up with another school, who have a similar newspaper or planning to get one. They are looking forward to working with us more!
