Short Story Competition

Are you a young writer?  If you enjoy writing stories and the chance to win a prize, enter our writing competition, which is open to pupils and young people from all schools in the Harlington Area Schools Trust.  Stories should be no longer than 500 words and on the theme of partnership, alliances and communication.  Younger pupils may wish to write a poem instead. 

Entries can be handwritten or word processed, and should bear your name and year group, plus the name of your school.  Entries will be judged by each school first, with a number then being submitted for the overall prizes.  Age ranges are Years 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-11, 12-13.

The deadline for entries is Friday 8 December.  A judging panel of local writers and former pupils will choose winners in each category in the first half of the Spring Term.  Winning stories will be uploaded to the HAST website and the winners in each age range will receive a prize and a certificate.  For more information, talk to your English teacher.

Good Luck!
