Story Writing Competition - A Summer Stars Event.
Online Event

This year, as well as enjoying the all the amazing worlds you visit when reading books, Summer Stars is celebrating your imagination by running a 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, 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.

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.
