Rita Marley's foundation launches essay competition



Legendary Reggae singer and personality, Rita Marley has championed a new essay writing competition, with the theme based on her late husband and Reggae icon, Bob Marley.

The competition, officially launched on Wednesday, goes under the theme, Bob Marley: His Music and Message. According to a release from the Rita Marley Foundation, this theme ‘provides ample room for exploration and expression by competition participants.”

Competitors have been asked to consider and expand upon these points when constructing their essays:

· How would you describe the impact of Bob Marley’s music on the youth?

· What is Bob Marley’s most important message to the youth, Jamaica and the world?

· How does Bob Marley’s life and his message encourage you to believe that you could?

· How does Bob Marley’s music encourage peace in communities?

· How is Bob Marley legendary?

· Discuss your opinion of whether music can bring peace, love and unity.

For this year’s competition, the foundation has decided to open up the competition to the Haile Selassie Junior High School, Bob Marley Primary and Junior High School, Marcus Garvey High School and Papine High School.

Each of these schools will assign a teacher to select its three top essays. The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2014. Judges will then choose the three best essays overall and award prizes to the top schools and individual authors. The winner of the competition will be announced on July 1, with his or her winning essay to be published on the Rita Marley Foundation website as well as its Harambe newsletter.

Recently, Rita Marley and her foundation organized the 10th annual Africa Unite Youth Symposium, which took place at the University of the West Indies (UWI) in mid-February. The symposium is used to help uplift young people using Bob Marley’s messages and missions, encouraging them to work hard, engage in positive activity and deviate from criminality. You can check out highlights of the symposium above this article.
