Irie FM and Tarrus Riley Freedom writer competition
International reggae artiste Tarrus Riley has once again joined forces with radio station Irie FM to present the Tarrus Riley-Irie FM Freedom Writer competition.
The competition seeks to unearth the creativity of teenagers and their knowledge of black history.
In a release to the media, Riley said feedback and response from the competition last year were overwhelming, hence the decision to make it an annual one.
"Last year, (2011) we had the competition and we got a lot of entries and most were quite impressive. We want to use this competition to create awareness about black history," Riley explained.
The competition is open to students between the ages of 12 and 17 years old. They are required to write a poem or essay of no more than 200 words and explain why black history is important and relevant to them.
Entries must be creative, original, and dynamic and can be emailed to email@example.com. Entries can also be dropped off at Irie FM's Kingston or Ocho Rios offices.
The deadline for entries is February 29.
First prize is an ipad and second prize is a book voucher valued at $20,000. There will also be consolation prizes.READ MORE ABOUT IRIE FMREAD MORE ABOUT TARRUS RILEY
