The theme for this year’s Young Writer competition is “My Happiest Day”. Our young people are asked to produce a piece of fiction or non-fiction/story or poem, relating to this theme. It should be up to 550 words long or 1 side of an A4 sheet.
There are 3 age groups:- Junior [7-10 years], Intermediate [11-13 years] and Senior [14-17 years].
Clubs are asked to inform Jackie Grigor no later than Friday 9th October 2020 if they have pupils wishing to enter. [For Club entry forms, e-mail Jackie here]
Individual clubs may decide the submission dates for their local Heats, but please note that winning entries from the club heats should be submitted for the District Final to Jackie Grigor no later than Friday 22nd January 2021.
This will allow sufficient time for judging before submission to the National Finals by Monday, March 29th 2021. Please note that [for the National Finals only] the submissions are required to be in electronic form!
Depending, of course, on the Covid-19 situation next Spring, we would very much hope to organise a “get-together “ - around the end of March, when we can present our winners with their certificates and prizes.
Pupils’ Entry forms and the Young Writer Information Pack can be downloaded from the RIBI website here (NB You will need to log in to "My Rotary" for full access), but are also available from Jackie Grigor.
