Calling budding young authors
A new and exciting county-wide competition is giving youngsters across Sussex the opportunity to show off their story writing skills and have their very own book printed.
The ‘Evonprint Get Kids Writing’ competition invites children who attend all Sussex primary and secondary schools to enter by writing their own short story book on any topic they choose. They may use as many words as they like and can include illustrations.
The competition, run by Evonprint, one of Sussex’s leading print and design specialists, is designed to encourage children to use their imaginations and develop their story writing skills.
Steve Rowland, Managing Director at Evonprint, commented:
“Education is something we are passionate about at Evonprint which is why we wanted to run a competition to get kids writing. Young people from schools across Sussex are free to write a short story from their imaginations – anything goes! It can be a picture book or non-illustrated, we are just very excited to see what stories the children come up with.”
Two winners will be chosen from schools across Sussex (one primary and one secondary school winner) and will have their creations printed and bound by Evonprint into five beautiful books to keep or hand out to family and friends. Each of the two children will also receive a £50 Amazon voucher and their school will receive £75 worth of national book tokens to enhance its own library.
