READING LEVEL: GREEN
The Kids News Short Story Competition closes on Friday, June 24. Hurry and get your entry in just like Natalie Morgan.
The Year 5 student, who loves reading funny books by British author David Walliams and Australian Treehouse author Andy Griffiths, was a runner up in last year’s competition and has been busily working on her entry for this year.
ABOUT THE SHORT STORY COMPETITION
The competition has four age groups: Kindergarten to Year 2; Years 3-4; Years 5-6 and Years 7-9.
A panel of judges, led by award-winning author Jackie French, will choose the winning entries, with the first prize winner in each age category scoring 10 copies of their short story published into a printed book with a personally designed cover, plus an iPad and a HarperCollins book pack.
There are also prizes for one runner-up and three highly commended entries in each age group.
Teachers can submit their students’ entries using the online entry form below. A consent form, signed by the student’s parent or guardian, must be attached to the entry form and can be found below.
The 2022 Kids News Short Story writing competition opens at 9am (AEST) Monday, May 30, and closes at 5pm (AEST) Friday, June 24, 2022.
