Information for Clubs

Communication skills are one of the most sought after and useful skills that young people can demonstrate.  The Young Writer competition provides an opportunity for the young people of District 1010 to put their skills to the test.  The task is to produce a written or typed story or poem on a set theme.   An A4 sheet or 500 words is a suggested suitable submission.  We hope as many schools and individuals as possible will participate in this exciting competition.

The theme for 2017-18 is "A Different Perspective"
