The writing competition details are still below. Thank you to those children who have already submitted their work.

 

Rotary International is promoting a NATIONAL YOUNG WRITER COMPETITION

This well established and successful competition is open to all school and college communities, home educated pupils and any other young people’s community organisations.

TASK

To produce a written or typed story in prose entitled ‘My Inspiration’ The written entry could be fiction or non-fiction, a story or a poem as long as the piece relates to the theme.

 

An A4 page or up to 500 hundred words is a suggested suitable submission.

 

Entries should be the originals and unfortunately they cannot be returned after the competition, therefore we recommend you scan/photocopy your work, so that you have a copy to keep.
