This week I assign my students to write a notice based on the following situation:
The Student Union is to organize an English Speech Contest. You are supposed to write a notice on behalf of the Student Union to inform all the students at your university to participate in it.
After collecting their writing, I found one of their common problems is that the content of the body is empty. So I go to the Internet, search the topic and write a notice on my own. I think that there are still some expressions or sentences which are not native English. So could you help me to correct the notice?
