Kate Choi (Gr 7)  and Grace Park (Gr 11) were invited to SIWA’s International Women’s Day celebration on March 22 to receive certificates of recognition for winning the essay competition in the Junior and Senior divisions, respectively. Entries were received from select International Schools across Korea and we are immensely proud of Kate and Grace for bringing home the top prize for Seoul Foreign School!  Students from Grade 7 to 12 were asked to reflect on gender equality and progress and submitted essays which were judged by a panel led by Monica Williams, editor of ‘Discovery Magazine’ (pictured above). Furthermore the organization will donate 300,000 and 500,000 in the winners’ names to a SIWA-vetted charity of their choice.  Their top winning essays also will be published in Discovery, but you can read Kate’s essay HERE and Grace’s essay HERE.  A truly stellar achievement!
