Children’s Short Story Competition – 2020 Theme: Female Detectives

We’re pleased to announce a new short story writing competition for children and young writers (to age 16) in the Huon Valley and surrounds.

Competition Opens: Monday 2 November 2020 – but you can start work on your story now!

Entries Due: 6 pm SUNDAY 29 NOVEMBER 2020

With the support of the Huon Valley Council, this year’s competition is being conducted entirely online to ensure it is COVID-19 safe.

Children (to age 16) who normally live in the Huon Valley, full time or part time, are encouraged to enter.

We want you to create your own female detective – real or imagined, human or animal – and tell us how she solves a crime or mystery.

The competition is open to children up to the age of 16, regardless of home address, but please note that you must follow the process for entering a story.

Children who live in the Huon Valley and surrounding areas are strongly encouraged to enter.
