ANNOUNCING THE BEST 25 ESSAYS! Congratulations to all winners!

The committee of the essay competition once again would like to thank all of the participants of the competition. We have received many great, great pieces that put a significant focus on exploring Jusuf Kalla’s ideas and experiences. Overall, the content of the essays is mostly about peacemaking and the primary role of Vice President Jusuf Kalla in championing peacemaking in Ambon, Poso, Aceh, South Thailand and Afghanistan.

It has to be admitted that the panel of juries has had little difficulties in marking the essays. The panel of juries consists of:

  1. Suhartono, KOMPAS Journalist
  2. Firmanzah, Rector of Paramadina University
  3. Pandu Utama Manggala, Chair of the PPI Dunia 2017-2018

They see that all of the essays are valuable pieces that all contribute positively to the peacemaking discourse both in Indonesia and the world. However, in the process of judging, the juries were accompanied with a marking rubric containing five primary elements the essays were judged/marked against.

  1. Originality: The essay shows a significant, genuine idea in the context of peace-making idea in the context of peace-making
  2. Clarity: the main idea is clearly identified and elaborated well
  3. Coherence: The piece shows a structure coherence
  4. Use of sources: Sources used are credible and well-cited and well-sourced
  5. Reference to JK’s ideas of peace-making and/or ideas of peace-making from Indonesian perspectives

Based on that marking rubric, the panel has decided that below are the top 25 selected essays. The first, second and third best essays deserve the main prizes. All 25 essays’ writers will be contacted for further invitations for the prize award ceremony and reception with the VP (probably late November or the beginning of December).

Congratulations to all of the winners!
