Light Millennium ("LM") is proud
to launch its new "RUMI &
CLARKE Inspirational Writing Awards Project"
as an OPEN CALL TO ALL globally
in conjunction with educational institutions
and after school programs at local levels.
This unique project coincides with the
800th Birthday of Mevlana Celaleddin
Rumi (1207 - 1273), which will be
celebrated internationally by UNESCO in
2007, and legendary living author and
scientist Arthur C. Clarke's 90th Birthday
(December 16, 2007).
"Awards" part of the
program solely aims to encourage and involve
students actively in inspirational writing
process based on RUMI & CLARKE's visions
with a hope that RUMI & CLARKE's visions
will help connect students at both local
and global levels with Eastern and Western
philosophies and will greatly serve removing
prejudice from both parts towards one
another as well as from students' minds.
For this very reason, this project has
both local and global purpose and perspective.
For the local part of the project, we
are seeking to collaborate with schools/educational
institutions at levels from elementary
and after school programs (from elementary
to high schools) to college and universities.
The Light Millennium is honored and excited
to present an annual Writing Awards Project
which will build a bridge between the
13th Century Middle Eastern philosopher
and poet Mevlana Celaleddin RUMI, and
a Western visionary, pioneer scientist
and legendary author Sir Arthur C. CLARKE,
who has marked the 20th and 21st centuries
with his visions. This project aims to
encourage children and youth, from elementary
school to the university levels, to generate
positive ideas with regard to connecting
the East & West. Through a writing
contest based upon RUMI's & CLARKE's
visions in literature, arts, science,
and the future, LM endeavors to foster
a bridge between EAST & WEST, which
will promote mutual understanding, as
well as cultural exchange and enrichment
among the young generation. With
the "Awards" part of the project,
we encourage young people from all ways
of life to be part of this project, in
a celebration of these "Two
Universal Men"s Visions.
For the first year (2007), we aim to collaborate
with at least one elementary, one middle,
and one high school, as well as one college
or university. However, the project
will be open to ALL globally via On-Line
submissions and to all students from elementary
to university level.
We would be interested in collaborating
with your educational institution for
procuring writing submissions from your
Time frame of the project:
