Essay Contest

The Hellenic American Union is committed to supporting Foreign Language Schools in their efforts to provide their students with the best possible foreign-language education. As part of this commitment, during 2008-2016, the Hellenic American Union organized an Essay Contest among Foreign Language School students preparing for the University of Michigan Examination for the Certificate of Competency in English (ECCE).

The Essay Contest was a creative learning event held annually. Through their schools, students were invited to use specially created materials providing practice in all four language skills and to produce ECCE-format essays on the same topic forwarded to the Hellenic American Union. There, a Rating Committee selected a number of finalists who, along with a parent or legal guardian, came to Athens for a weekend as guests of the Hellenic American Union to participate in the final writing event. For this event, all finalists were given a new topic on which they wrote an original essay. All finalists received prizes; the one who had written the best essay won the grand prize.

Through the Essay Contest, the Hellenic American Union aimed to help students develop their writing skills and to provide teachers with an additional teaching tool for their students’ preparation for the University of Michigan Examination for the Certificate of Competency in English (ECCE).

The Hellenic American Union Essay Contest was geared to students of English approaching a B2 level. Through the essay contest, the Hellenic American Union aimed to:

  • help students develop their writing skills
  • help students express their ideas creatively in a learning context
  • provide teachers of English with an additional teaching tool that would enhance their students’ knowledge of the English language
  • help candidates prepare for the University of Michigan Examination for the Certificate of Competency in English (ECCE)
  • raise awareness of cultural, social and environmental issues of national and global concern
