Record 31 entries for Premju Frans Sammut

With the aim of furthering the correct use of Maltese in conversation, reading and writing in all walks of life, the second edition of Premju Frans Sammut was held yesterday, with a record 31 entries.

Three prizes were awarded: to individuals, non-governmental organisations and schools.

Gabriel Lia from the Seminary Secondary School walked off with the category for individuals for which there were ten nominations, all given consideration for the way the language is presented, how it is used, and whether it is used in an innovative manner.

Another 20 entries were also submitted in two different categories for the Premju Frans Sammut, which was awarded for the first time last year on the initiative of the Ministry for Education and Labour.

The category for entries open to organisations, private companies and local councils was awarded to the Write Deal Association, which was set up four years ago to promote awareness of social and environmental topics through the use of audio-visual productions.

The category for schools and educational bodies was awarded to Tal-Handaq secondary school, Qormi.

During the prize-giving ceremony Education Minister Evarist Bartolo said that  thanks to this award named after one of the foremost promoters of the Maltese language, the Ministry was helping to further strengthen the language in all sectors, and to celebrate the correct use of good, idiomatic Maltese.
