Writing Contest : Conversation with The Little Prince

We are pleased to be able to share the following information from our long standing partner, the Fondation Antoine de Saint Exupéry pour la Jeunesse.

To celebrate the 120th anniversary of the birth of writer-pilot Antoine de Saint Exupéry, the Fondation Antoine de Saint Exupéry pour la Jeunesse together with Le Labo des Histoires and #LEARNING PLANET are launching a writing competition in French and English, which will soon be available in Arabic, Chinese, Spanish and Russian, for young people from all over the world.

writing contest Conversation with Little Prince
Using the film The Little Prince by director Mark Osborne as a starting point, the competition’s video trailer features the imaginary encounter between the film’s young main character and the Little Prince who came to visit her during the recent period of lockdown which has affected almost all children on the planet.

Imagine that the Little Prince is Back!

Recently, the Little Prince visited a girl during lockdown to check in on her, just like he did decades ago with a pilot lost in the desert. We weren't there to hear what the two discussed, but maybe you can imagine their conversation.

Do you think they had time to talk about her fears, her dreams or her hopes for our planet? Did the Little Prince share with her some of his magical wisdom? Maybe he told her what he has been up to since the last time we heard from him?

Please write down and send us the conversation you imagine. Next January 24th, on International Day of Education, we will share across the world some of the most inspiring stories to celebrate youth and creativity!

Warning: texts must be sent before midnight on 30 NOVEMBER 2020.
