Rotary Young Writer competition 2016
Rotary Young Writer Competition
This easy to enter competition is ideal to encourage young people to take up pen and paper
The ability to communicate effectively is one of the most sought after and useful skills that young people can demonstrate. Rotary wishes to promote writing through the RIBI Young Writer competition.
There are young people who have this gift or have the ability to develop it. Rotary promotes writing through the Rotary in Great Britain & Ireland Young Writer competition. The topic for 2016 is :
OUR WORLD IS BEAUTIFUL
This competition is open to young people aged 17 or under on the 31st August:
Junior 7 – 10 years (by the 31 August each year)
Intermediate 11 – 13 years (by the 31 August each year)
Senior 14 – 17 years (by the 31 August each year)
An amanuensis can be used for entrants with motor control difficulties to record their work to paper.
Starting with club level competitions, winners progress to district events and ultimately a national final. The winning work is subsequently published in Rotary magazines. The quality of work submitted in previous years has been outstanding and we expect no less this year.
