1 XXIX LITERARY COMPETITION RULES Jocs Florals 2018

2 XXIX JOCS FLORALS ÀGORA SANT CUGAT IS St. Jordi s Day (La Diada de Sant Jordi the cultural festival of books and roses) is approaching and, as always, we are organising the Àgora Sant Cugat Jocs Florals for this year, the cultural festival of excellence. This year we will be celebrating the XXIX Festival, with many different proposals and activities so that everyone can enjoy themselves, learn and participate. The main objective, without a doubt, is our LITERARY COMPETITION which, as you all know, is open to students, former students, parents, family members, teachers and former teachers. This year we would like to encourage even more of you to join in so that we have more participants than ever. We are also organising the traditional talks with authors and illustrators, literary forums for all the different year groups (from Infant to Secondary), informal talks with actors and other entertainers who encourage reading, theatrical sessions, musical concerts and, of course, the Literary Festival which will be the closing act of all these different cultural events. On Thursday 19th April, to award the different prizes, the XXIX Literary Competition Ceremony will take place for the Baccalaureate students, parents, teachers and former students category. The literary tradition of the Jocs Florals is customary all over Catalunya and in our School. Students, former students and families can participate and obtain the recognised Literary Certificate and its corresponding flower: the Natural Flower, the Wild Rose or the Violet (and, at the same time, the distinguished consideration of Literary Maestro). The truth is that many of the texts that are presented each year reach the highest literary levels. We would like to remind you that you are all invited to participate (in prose and/or poetry) in any of the languages we use in School: Catalan, Spanish, English, French, German and Chinese. The XXIX Literary Competition Rules can be found on the CAV. We would like the St. Jordi Festival to be open to the participation of everyone and that all our families know about the activities that will take place in the different year groups. St. Jordi is approaching. Don t leave it to the last minute join in, have fun and participate in the Àgora Sant Cugat XXIX JOCS FLORALS and may the Muses be favourable! Don t miss it we look forward to you joining us! Jordi A. Ballús (Literary Jury Secretary)
