Materials Writing Contest for English Teachers in Japan

The Materials Writers Special Interest Group of the Japan Association for Language Teaching (JALT) has organised its first contest of original ideas for English teaching materials. To submit an entry for the contest, it's necessary to sign up to be a member of the contest website in order to be able to upload and download files. An entry should be one complete unit or lesson and all entries must include at least one image. An image can be chosen from those on the site or can be your own pictures or clip art images. All entries must include information regarding the age and level of the students the lesson is for, as well as the goals and duration of the lesson.

Entries will be judged according to how well the lessons match the above, clarity of directions, and other criteria. The renowned author and teacher trainer, Marc Helgesen, will comment on submitted material. One of the judges is an editor from Thomson Publishing, and organizers are looking for teachers to also volunteer to act as judges. Prizes, which have yet to be decided, will be awarded to winners. The deadline for submitted ideas is Sept. 15. For more information, see the website below or send e-mail to the organizers.
