On November 22nd, the College of General Education at Sookmyung Women’s University held a presentation for finalists in the Sookmyung Creative Writing Contest. Professor Park Seungug, representative for the program said, “The Sookmyung Creative Writing Contest allows students to develop their creativity and problem-solving skills. Also, the presentations are involved in the contest to improve their communication skills. Students need to volunteer for various contests, which they should see as opportunities for self-improvement, in order to develop themselves as leaders of the future, ready to lead the nation with great communication skills.” Jeong Sebom, a student in the Department of Chinese Language & Literature `16, said, “I decided to enter the contest after my professor suggested I enter. I will be forever thankful to him because the contest made me really consider my future in life. I recommend all Sookmyungians participate in the contest the next time it is held.” The contest began on November 7th when students were asked to submit a piece of creative writing on the ‘Relationship between a Robot and a Person’. One of the stipulates was that robots can chat, have feelings, and are capable of free thought. Two days after submissions, finalists were announced. Being all-inclusive, the contest also looks at students’ communicative skills and their ability to reason out a problem. Debriefing on final stage contest requirements to finalists and student judges was held at 5 pm on November 22nd and 24th with final judging and awards to be presented on December 1st.
