Rotary Young Writers 2024

A Rotary competition for young pupils on a theme set by Rotary Great Brtain & Ireland


The Rotary Young Writers Copertition is a well established and popular event. The entrants are required to submit a story in prose or verse to a theme set by Rotary.  For the stories the number of words must not exceed  550 and for the verse no more than 40 lines.

The theme for 2024 was 'REBUILDING' and each of the three age groups were given the same theme. The groups were: Junior (7 to 10), Intermediate (11 to 13) and Senior (14 to 17). The udges applied criteria that encompassed, imagination, ability to translate ideas to the written word, spelling (to some extent), and originallity.

This year there were more than 60 entries from the Dingwall cachment schools and the Dingwall Rotary Club Heat winners were: Lily Chalton from Avoch PS and Kooper Mackenzie from Resolis Primary School.Both these entries will be awarded cash prizes by the Club and their entries forwarded to the next stage of the competition at Rotary District 1010 level.The District covers the whole of the North and N E of Scotland and includes the Ortkney, Shetland and Westen Isles.

Latest News:     One of the entries from Dingwall, Lily Charlton of Avoch Primary School, achieved third place which is a brilliant result for Lily in the face of such stiff and widespread cometition. Lily will receive a certificate and also another cash prize from District 1010.
