Here we Go.... Nationwide E-Fest 2011

At the first beginning, E-Fest (ESo Festival) was only a dream of our English Society (ESo) of Lampung University. However ESoers were trying hard to make it realized. We believe, when there is a will, there is the way. Thus, in 2009 E-Fest was born with 5 branches of competitions namely Debate, Speech, Scrabble, News Casting and Story Telling. That was aimed for students in Lampung scoped only.

Then in 2010, we held E-Fest 2010 for the second time for Lampung region still. Later, we realized that students from other institutions outside Lampung demanded E-Fest to be a nationwide English competition so everyone in the country has the same chance to participate regardless where they were from. Regarding that consideration, we welcomed some institutions outside Lampung to also join E-Fest. In the end, general trophy came to Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia (UPI) because they grabbed the general winner.

So, who is next? What institution is going to get general trophy this year?

Here is the thing. We're gonna have two general trophies this year; Lampung Governor's Trophy for Varsity category, and Rector's Trophy for Senior High School category.

So, here we go...

This year, we proudly present a prestigious competition “Nationwide E-Fest 2011” that will be held on October, 13th-17th 2011. We would like to hold a national competition in national level, with six branches of competition namely: BP Debate, Scrabble, Speech, Story Telling, News Casting, and Wall Magazine.

Wise words say how powerful the words to change the world.

In this competition, we will have the Collins Scrabble system.

In an English-language set the game contains 100 tiles, 98 of which are marked with a letter and a point value ranging from 1 to 10. The number of points of each lettered tile is based on the letter's frequency in standard English writing; commonly used letters such as E or O are worth one point, while less common letters score higher, with Q and Z each worth 10 points. The game also has two blank tiles that are unmarked and carry no point value. The blank tiles can be used as substitutes for any letter; once laid on the board, however, the choice is fixed. Other language sets use different letter set distributions with different point values. If a player uses all seven of the tiles in the rack in a single play, a bonus of 50 points is added to the score of that play, these bonus points are added after totaling the score for that turn.
