The English-Speaking Union holds Shakespeare Competition; Awards the You’ve been Sentenced! word game to participants!

February 29, 2012

Shakespeare Festival Competition Participants at the Arden Theatre in Philadelphia each received a copy of the You've been Sentenced! word game.

When Judith Francis of The English-Speaking Union (Philadelphia) contacted us about becoming a part of the organization’s Annual Shakespeare Competition at Arden Theatre we were thrilled!

The Competition is designed to develop students’ critical thinking, close reading and public speaking skills through reading, analysis and performance of Shakespeare, as well as increase their overall appreciation of literature as they explore the beauty of Shakespeare’s language.

Each participant received a copy of the You’ve been Sentenced! word game and a certificate of participation. The winners were:

  • First place: Elizabeth Duska from Merion Mercy Academy
  • Second place: Sony Matthew from Central High School
  • Third place: Erica Hutchinson from North Penn High School

The English-Speaking Union is committed to promoting scholarship and the advancement of knowledge through the effective use of English in an expanding global community.  For more information about the competition or other programs, please visit The English-Speaking Union.
