This year pupils from schools were set the challenge by Rotary GB&I to write a story or poem on the subject "A Different Perspective" . The competition was given tremendous support by schools across District 1145,and the clubs that encouraged submissions were delighted by the response. In one case having 96 Junior entries and 52 Intermediate entries from 2 schools. The entries were judged in three age groups Junior 7-10 Intermediate 11-13 and Senior 14-17. Each club then judged them and sent the best in each category to be judged at District level. Sixteen clubs took part and the judges were impressed by the high standard received in the Intermediate category and the different topics covered by all ages.
