commemorative bilingual educational publication.

Submissions must be forwarded in digital format, may be in English or Maltese and must feature one of the
following themes:
• Competition in Sport
• Health in Sport
• Enjoyment in Sport
• Malta at the Olympic Games
• The Games of the Small States of Europe
• The History of Maltese Sport

Learners are not restricted with any word limit and categories will be divided as follows:
Primary (Year 5 and 6 only), Middle (Year 7 and 8), Secondary (Year 9, 10 and 11)

Submissions are to be sent to Ms. Miriam Aquilina (miriam.aquilina@ilearn.edu.mt) by not later than Friday 20th

A Certificate of Participation will be awarded to all participants. Authors of the top 50 submissions will also be
awarded a copy of the publication. Apart from these rewards, authors of the top three submissions will receive a
