CHILDREN’S STORY WRITING COMPETITION | Grades 4 – 9

This is your opportunity to participate in the 2018 “Telling Stories” children’s story writing competition organised by Mooloolaba Rotary in partnership with the Creative Writing Program, USC and Voices on the Coast.

Everyone would agree that we need to encourage our young children to read and write.

With this objective in mind, Mooloolaba Rotary together with the USC and Voices on the Coast has organised the Children’s Story Writing Competition open until August 20 and culmi­nates in an Awards Night at the University on 15 October 2018.

COMPETITION MODEL

1. Title

One of the cornerstones of Rotary International is the “4 Way Test” namely:
Is it the Truth?
Is it fair to all concerned?
Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

There is contentious debate on the issue of Climate Change but almost everyone will agree that a lot more needs to be done to protect our environment. With this in mind and in the spirit of the “4 Way Test”, the title of the 2018 Telling Stories competition is:

“I should have saved the tree”.
