The FABO authors are taking a break for the school holidays, but if you’re looking for something to do in the meantime, here’s a suggestion.
The Elsie Locke Writing Prize
For all keen writers in years 7 & 8, here is a very cool writing competition. The Elsie Locke Writing Prize is an incredible opportunity for students to write a short story – and perhaps win $250 and be published in the School Journal while you’re at it. This year’s topic is “A story set in early New Zealand that is about exploration, a discovery, or an encounter”. Click here for the teaching support material, additional info and the entry form. Entries must be in by Friday, July 14th.
