    The competition between the two boys in the Kiterunner ( I forget their names) for the affection of the father highlights the wider conflict between the ethnic groups they belong to at the time.

    The kite competition shows how people value physical achievement more than intellectual. His father isn't too interested in his writing.

    Other competitions..

    Competing for business when they move to America?

    1000 splendid sons has various conflicts. Between the women and their husband, between each other for his affections. Between the two men for the younger girl. They all show wider situations within the Islamic world.

    Hope that gives you some ideas.
