The Camões Portuguese Cultural Centre in Maputo, in conjunction with the Pedagogical University, is promoting the final of the 15th Camões Eloquence Award, culminating with the Grand Final on April 21 at 3:00 p.m., at Camões, Maputo.
After a workshop was held with 50 teachers and students from high schools in Maputo, 14 semi-finalists were selected to participate in the Orality Workshop directed by actress Ana Magaia, between April 17 and 20 at the Camões Centre. The workshop improves students’ oral expression techniques using the texts submitted for the competition and presented publicly in the final.
At 3:00 p.m. on April 21, students will present their works publicly and be evaluated by the jury made up of writer Ungulani Ba Ka Khosa, actress Ana Magaia and university professor Carla Maciel, who will assess the students’ argumentative and rhetorical capacity and decide on a winner.
Winning students, teachers and participating schools receive sets of books offered by Plural Editores, as well as certificates. The top three awardees also receive small cash prizes granted from Camões for the purchase of school material.
Created in 2002, the Camões Eloquence Prize aims to alert students to the importance of oral expression in Portuguese in relation to the job market and areas as varied as social communication, teaching, public relations, advertising, theatre, cinema, among others.
The Camões 2017 Eloquence Award is the result of a partnership between the Camões – Portuguese Cultural Centre in Maputo, the Faculty of Language, Communication and Arts of the Pedagogical University and the Portuguese Language Centre at the Pedagogical University and has the support of Plural Editores.Source: Camões - Centro Cultural Português em Maputo
