Congratulations to the three finalists from lycée Lucie Aubrac! The theme of this year’s competition was AIR.
There were 88 entries from 22 schools around the world this year, 45 in the 3e/2de category and 43 in the 1e/Tle one. Seven finalists went through to each category.
OIB Cambridge Inspector, Dr Celia O’Donovan, chose the winning poems: ‘It has been an enjoyable experience reading the poems that made it to the final and, as always, it has been difficult to decide on the winners… The young poets… wrote with maturity and flair. To have made it to the final shortlist
is a great honour and all the finalists should be proud of their achievement,’.
Mahé was selected as a finalist in the Junior category with her poem ‘Heaven Life’. The poem ‘Angel’, co-authored by Ajar and Océanne, went through to the final of the Senior category.
