Calling All Budding Writers!

Have You Got A Story To Tell? Story-writing Contest

The Curriculum Planning and Development Division of the Ministry of Education in collaboration with Academy of Principals (Singapore), is organising the Have You Got A Story To Tell? story-writing contest. The contest aims to provide all budding writers a platform to showcase their creativity in telling Singapore stories that are not only engaging but will help children understand and be proud of Singapore’s history, culture and folklore.

Writers whose works are selected will get to work with professional editors to refine their manuscript. Selected stories will also be published in a range of formats so that they can be enjoyed by children and be used as reading resources in the curriculum.

Stories must be of original material and must not have been previously published. Writers can choose to submit stories for the following age groups: 5 to 6-year-olds, 7 to 12-year-olds and 13 to 17-year-olds.

The closing date for submission is 31 May 2012 for the Open Category.
