1st 2019 Essay Competition Announced


We are very happy to announce our first essay competition of 2019! You could win your very own telescope — worth $30,000 GYD — just by writing a short essay!

See details below.

Just submit a short essay (700 – 1200 words max) to us supporting the moot ‘We should preserve access to the night sky’. The essay should address the growing problem of light pollution and what a country like Guyana can do to ensure we preserve and value the night sky.

If your essay is chosen as providing a carefully articulated and well-argued position, you will be the winner of a beautiful 90mm Explore Scientific telescope. See image below.

This telescope is excellent for a beginner or experienced stargazer. It is easy to use, super portable, and lightweight. Comes with every accessory you need, including a smartphone adapter.

To submit your essay, either email ferlin@aaagy.org or send us an attachment as PDF in messenger. It’s that easy!

Both the general public and registered members of AAAG are invited to participate. Excluded are committee and honorary members.

Deadline to submit is August 2nd, 2019!!! So mark your calendars!

The winner will be announced by the end of August as we carefully read through submissions.

So grab your pens (or computers) and get writing! We can’t wait to read your submissions. Good luck, and clear skies wherever you are in Guyana! ๐Ÿง๐Ÿ”ญ๐Ÿ–‹๏ธ๐Ÿ—’๏ธ
