ESSC Semi-final on ZOOM on April 25th, 2020

Dear Participant,
Thank you for your continued support of the Rotary Club of Taipei’s English Social Solutions Contest! We want to first thank you for the continued signups and support of our competition. We currently have over 40 teams and over 100 students participating in this year’s program.
As many of you know, the COVID-19 virus has been circulating around the globe, and the situation is still escalating in many parts of the world, including Taiwan.
As many of you have spent a lot of time preparing the presentations, it would be unfortunate to delay the event for the second time. Thus, to ensure the safety of our participants and to allow you enough time for preparation, we have decided to adjust the format of the competition to an online competition and having the finals in person.
In order to be fully transparent and to ensure the fairness of the competition, we would like to invite all teachers and students who are interested to participate and listen in our Semifinals, which will be presented via ZOOM. Currently, we are planning a in person final in Taipei, however, this is still under evaluation and may be adjusted according to the covid-19 situation. If we cannot conduct a in person final contest, we will host the Final contest via ZOOM as well.
Please see the attached guideline for more details on the updated version of this year’s competition.
While the Covid-19 virus is impacting many aspects of our society and daily lives, we thank you for your understanding that these are necessary precautions during unprecedented times, and that these changes are in place to ensure the safety for you and your community.
Once again, we thank you for your understanding during this difficult time and for your continued support.
See you online soon,
On behalf of the Rotary Club of Taipei’s English Social Solutions Committee
Jason Chu
ESSC Chair 19-20
