Competition launched to write and illustrate a short story or poem

Throughout the academic year, we run a variety of writing and literacy competitions for students to showcase their passion for creative writing and demonstrate original ideas.

In conjunction with World Book Day, we are running a fantastic competition where students in all years can create an illustrated short story or poem aimed at primary school children (aged 4 to 6 years).

Students can work on their own or in pairs with another student to develop their ideas and design their story by adding characters, colours and design to bring the story to life.

The story or poem could be completely original or a re-imagined version of a childhood favourite by adding some big twists of your own. As a guide the story should take no more than 3 minutes to read.

Competition entries should be submitted to the school library by Thursday 28th March 2024 and the competition is just for students at schools who are part of South Lincolnshire Academies Trust.

The winners will be announced after the Easter holidays and they will have the opportunity to visit a local primary school to share their story with the primary school pupils.

To reward students for their hard work and efforts, there will be prizes for the winners and highly commended entries plus the winners stories will be published on our website.
