February 21, 2022, we celebrate International Mother language Day. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) officially declared February 21 as International Mother Language Day in 1999, and many countries around the world celebrate this day.
On the occasion of this day, the Southern Mongolia Congress in Japan and the World Mongol Federation announces a traditional Mongolian handwriting essay contest on "Southern Mongolia I know".
"SOUTHERN MONGOLIA I KNOW" guide for the traditional Mongolian handwriting essay contest.
The Mongolian language and script is not only a common value of all Mongols, but also a precious heritage. It has been at the forefront of the perceived culture, education, books and scriptures over the past thousand years. The Mongol manuscript, which has been declared a state manuscript by Chinggis Khan, has faced numerous challenges throughout its history and has been handed down to us today. It is unfortunate that many Mongolians will no longer be able to speak, write or learn their native language as a result of the gradual reduction of the Mongolian script in Southern Mongolia from 2019 and changes in the school curriculum. Mongolia has set a goal to switch to the Mongolian script in 2025, and preparations are underway. We are living in a time, everyone should work hard, as it is the sacred duty of all Mongolians to spread the Mongolian script and pass it on to future generations.
Therefore, the “SOUTHERN MONGOLIA I KNOW” traditional Mongolian handwriting essay contest is announced from February 21 to April 25, 2022 among Mongolian secondary and high school students.
The contestants are divided into two age groups: middle school and high school:
a) Grades 6-9 or middle school,
b) Grades 10-12 or High school.
The purpose of the contest is to promote the traditional Mongolian script to our children and grandchildren, to promote our Mongolian brothers and sisters, and to reward the best writers.
