Budding young writers from the Melton borough are being invited to put pen to paper and enter this year’s Rotary Young Writer Competition.
The annual event, run by the combined youth committees of the Rotary Club of Melton Belvoir and the Melton club, recognises young people’s writing skills. The winner, or winning school if it’s a school entry, will receive an engraved trophy and medal. All entrants will also receive a certificate.
This year’s theme is ‘Light Up the Community’. Entrants should think about the many types of community in which they may be involved and write either about a project which they know is making a difference, or suggest one which will help others and improve the community. Entries are to be a piece of prose on one side of A4 paper. They can be hand written or word-processed.
The three age groups are junior (aged 7-10), Intermediate (aged 11-13) and Senior (aged 14-17).
Entries can be a piece of class work written at school, a piece of school homework, or an individual entry written at home, but they must reflect the theme. All entries should clearly state that the work is the work of the entrant.
