This year Libraries Ireland is celebrating childrens’ creativity by running a Summer Stars Short Story competition.
The competition is open to 6-18 year olds living in the Republic of Ireland – of course 6 year olds won’t be competing against teenagers!
There are three age categories: age 6-9, age 10-14 and age 15-18.
To enter, write a story using the following opening line:
✨ “Of all the places in the world, I never thought I would be here…” ✨
Enter by emailing your story to: email@example.com by 5pm on 31st August. Children can enter as many stories as they like but stories must be 500 words and under.
There will be 15 finalists in each category and one national winner from each category.
Each category winner will receive a Tablet.
Each finalist in all categories will receive a €50 voucher.
That’s a lot of great prizes and a lot of chances to win so let your imagination fly and start writing today!
