Young Icelanders excel at writing short stories in English

We were delighted to welcome a group of young Icelandic elementary and high school students who participated in and won a writing contest organized by the Association of Teachers of English in Iceland (FEKÍ - Félag enskukennara á Íslandi). The winners came from all over Iceland and they reminded us of the quality of Icelandic education and the talent of Icelandic students. Among them were future Icelandic literary figures and leaders. It was quite gratifying to hand them their prizes and to see the expressions of pride from parents, teachers, and family members. We look forward to deepening our partnership with the Association.
