Communication Contest in Korean

I’ve neglected this blog for almost a month. So many things to do, so little time. I will definitely be back in March — when I’m done with my hagwon obligations. In the meantime, please take notice of this contest sponsored by CiCi Korea. It is the same organization that awarded Rep. Jasmine Lee as one of the image models of Korea in 2011.
You can download the application from CICI.
The Corea Image Communication Institute (CICI) is holding a communication contest with the topic of “Communicating for a Brighter Future of Korea.” The winner will be entitled to participate at the 4th Culture Communication Forum (CCF) on September 3-5, 2013 in Seoul as the Korean/foreign youth representative to discuss cultural themes together with world renowned cultural experts from Korea and abroad.

The theme of the contest is “Communicating for a Brighter Future of Korea.”
Choose only ONE of the following topics. Finalists must deliver their presentation in Korean.
1) What is the significance of the hallyu, the Korean Wave including K-pop and Korean drama? In your opinion, what other aspect of Korean culture can drive the next phase of the Korean wave? Why do you think that the aspect of Korean culture you chose will communicate well with the world? Use images, video or statistics to explain your position.
2) In your opinion, what will be the new keyword that will symbolize Korea for the rest of the world in 2013? Why do you think so? How can this keyword be promoted around the world?
3) In Korea, “multiculturalism” is often equated with Southeast Asian immigrants. If you were a scholar studying multiculturalism or a public official in charge of multicultural affairs, what could you do to change this perception? Give specific examples.
