One of my favorite Basque organizations, Jardun Euskara Elkartea in Bergara, Gipuzkoa, has organized a new writing contest to boost Basque language use among people in the Basque Country.
Summers can be full of wonderful experiences and great adventures, so don’t miss the chance to share your bit with the world. All you have to do is write a postcard in Basque and you might be the lucky winner of a new Tablet!
