The  Chamber of Somali Writers, as part of its developmental agenda, invites submissions from all Somalis across the world for its 2020 Essay Writing Competitions.

The theme of this edition is “Behavioral Role of Somali Youth Pre and Post Election”. We intend to draw a representative sketch of what Somali youth can contribute to nation building before and after elections; since they make up a great percentage of the Somali population. We believe, these voices, if penned down, can stimulate a nation wide awareness of how best Somali youth can render valuable contributions for socio-economic transformation.
