Dharamsala, March, 24th - Palden Gyal, a Tibetan student who is currently pursuing his International Baccalaureate programme at the Norway United World College, recently bagged third prize in the sixth edition of the International Poetry Competition held in Duino in Italy. His poem ‘RANGZEN’ was chosen among 1000 entries from participants from over 90 different countries. The first prize was bagged by a participant from Cameroon and second by an Italian.

The Festival and award ceremony was held from 19 to 21 March in the Italian town of Duino and was attended by guests and participants from 15 different countries. The best poems and the poetry sessions would be compiled into books and DVDs by September and the winning team will reunite in Italy during the launch.

Prof. Gabriella Valera Gruber, President of the Association Poesia e Solidarietà (Poetry and Solidarity) Trieste www.poesiaesolidarieta.it, says, “This poetry Competition is the most important international competition in the world for young people. We received poems from 90 countries and evaluated them in their original languages. The Palden's poem has been selected among 1000 poems.”

Poetry and Solidarity Association which organized the Poetry Festival was established on July 5, 2006. Every year they organize international poetry festivals to select the best budding poets from among different nations around the globe. The past winning poems are published on its website www.castellodiduinopoesia.it

After completing his matriculation he had received a full scholarship to pursue International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) at Red Cross Nordic United World College in Norway which is jointly financed by the governments of Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finaland and Iceland.
