The DA is celebrating Heritage Day in 2022 by giving the youth of this country the platform to share their untainted views of our beautiful nation through poetry.

We launched the poetry competition for young South Africans on the 11th of August, in two age groups – six to thirteen, and fourteen to eighteen – and asked them to tell us in a poem, in the language of their choice, what they love about South Africa.

We thank all participants who took the time to submit their writings. Hundreds of entries were received in six different languages, attesting to the talent and diversity of this country.

The judging panel had no easy task to decide on the six winners, for each of the two age categories.

Category 1: six to thirteen years

Category 2: fourteen to eighteen years

We congratulate all the winners and encourage them to continue expressing themselves in such a positive manner, never allowing challenging circumstances to distort their vision of a hopeful future in South Africa.
