ToekomsVonk’s Afrikaans Art and Creative Writing Competition, WINNERS for Primary Schools announced.

On 17 October 2019, ToekomsVonk held a function the Liedjietuin, at the Voortrekkermonument in Pretoria. The organisation celebrated their second birthday by announcing the winners of their 2019 Afrikaans Art and Creative Writing competition for Primary Schools. The competition was launched earlier in the year and was the second phase of their “Vonk jou Taal” project for promoting Afrikaans under the youth. In 2018, I similar competition was held for high school learners.

There were two categories for children to take part in, art or poetry. The learners were further divided into three age groups, namely Gr 1 – 3, Gr 4 – 6 and Gr 7. The theme of this year’s competition was proverbs and the children had a choice between the following proverbs:

  • “Husse met lang ore
  • Alle grappies op ‘n stokkie
  • Die aap uit die mou laat
  • Heuning om die mond smeer
  • Iepekonders hê”

More than 500 poems and 300 sketches were received from primary schools.

The winners were announced by two of ToekomsVonk’s directors, Amor Gerber and Steve Hofmeyr. ToekomsVonk would like to thank each child who send in an entry. Special thanks also to the teachers and parents who encouraged these children to take park. We are very proud of these children!
