Futian student wins first prize at China’s top writing competition
    2016-11-30  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    Zou Ruiyun, a Grade-8 student studying at Hongling Middle School in Futian District, stood out among over 1 million teenagers around the country and won the top prize of the Luxun Teenage Literature Awards.

    The competition attracted millions of students around China to submit their writing entries since April this year and Zou topped all of them for the top prize of the junior middle school group.

    “I was very surprised that I won the top prize and didn’t believe it until reporters came to interview me,” said Zou, “I felt so lucky to win the literature prize because it was my first time to participate in such a high-level writing competition.”

    The Luxun Teenage Literature Award was set up by Zhou Haiying, son of modern China’s most well-known literary giant Lu Xun, in 2009 in order to encourage young authors to write more. The organizing committee received a tremendous number of entries from Chinese teenagers from all around the world.

    Apart from engaging herself in writing, Zou is also fond of reading and ever since she was young, one of her favorite books has been “Walden” written by American author Henry David Thoreau.

    “The book tells me that we should choose the life that follows our true intention in order to live a pure and simple life,” said Zou.

    The young girl over the years has attended a number of writing competitions, but one in particular left a strong impression on her.

    At an on-site writing competition held by Futian District, Zou had missed the bus to the school where the competition was organized. She was 45 minutes late but still managed to finish writing her piece.

    “I didn’t rush just because I was late, instead I relaxed and focused on the competition,” said Zou, who later won the first prize at this writing competition.

    “This particular competition impacted me the most because it taught me to be patient and focus on what I have to do in the moment regardless if I made mistakes before,” said Zou.

    The winner also encouraged her peers to practice writing in their spare time and focus on depicting details with their most authentic feelings.
