Essay Competition 2021

The winner will receive this telescope and all accessories!

We’re delighted to announce details about our first competition for the new year! This year’s first essay competition will be based on writing a strong case for the following:

“Astronomy can teach us about our humanity.”

To get you started, here are some ideas to think about. What does astronomy bring to humanity? What do we learn from astronomy that teaches us about our place in the universe? What have we discovered through the work of astronomy that gives us important lessons for humanity’s existence? What are those lessons? For example, the universe is some 13.7 billion years old. This is an immense number on the scale of time! But what does it mean for us? Or, what should it mean? Be creative.

The winning essay will get to be featured on our website AND receive a special gift.

Grand Prize: One 70mm refractor telescope will be awarded along with the book ’50 Things To See With A Small Telescope’, a guide on observing the night sky.

RULES: – Be creative! Must be a resident in Guyana. Must be at least 16 years or older to submit.

Submit on or before March 15th.

HOW TO SUBMIT: – To participate, simply email your submission to, along with your Name and Age.

Winners will be announced by the end of March after review. So get to writing! Best wishes!
