To encourage VDMI family to write, VDMI creates a program called IDEAS Writing Challenge. IDEAS stands for Inspiration, Digitalization, Education, Art and culture, as well as Science. Those are topics of articles that VDMI alumni and grantees could write and submit for the challenge. The submission period starts from July 6th to August 2nd. There are three types of articles that can be submitted which are opinion, feature, and short story. At the end of the event, there will be winners who receive rewards. For those who want to join the challenge should submit the article through their Excellent Writing Club account. The Excellent Writing Club (EWC) is an online-writing-coaching platform dedicate to shape and improve VDMI writing skills (see the VDMI website for more information about the EWC). Those who have not been the member of the club should request for an account by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org and mention their name, university, and status (alumni/grantee).
