The challenge is on. Who will be the winners of this year’s Northern Beaches Young Writers’ Competition?

The theme for 2019 is ‘wild’, so think wild adventures, wild animals or even wild child. Entries must be an original story based around the word ‘wild’.

Now in its tenth year, entry to the competition is open to students up to and including those in Year 12 and entrants must live or go to school on the Northern Beaches and be members of the library.

The best entries will be published in an eBook to be included in the collections of Northern Beaches Council Library and the National Library of Australia.

There will also be a special awards ceremony to be held at Dee Why Council Chambers in September. 

In each age category, there are awards for the winner and runner up as well as encouragement and highly commended awards.

Mayor Michael Regan urged all budding young authors to enter the competition.

“In 2018, we received nearly 600 entries with winning entries coming from students at Harbord Public, Our Lady of Good Counsel, Kambora Public and Pittwater High to name a few.

“You never know; it might be the beginning of the next Harry Potter-like blockbuster. The standard of entries keeps getting higher every year.”

Entry forms with competition details are available on Council’s Library website and in branches of libraries across the Northern Beaches.

Entries open Wednesday 19 June and close Wednesday 7 August.
