Lincoln Envirotown 2011 Writing Competition

Write an illustrated story on an environmental/sustainability issue

• What do you think is the main environmental issue facing us in Canterbury? You might need to ask some grown-ups
• What do you think we should do to solve it – what are the possible solutions? What do you think is the best solution?
• Write a story to tell us how your solution would work. The story could include how you or other young people might carry out your ideas to make a difference, and what difficulties they might have to overcome.

Illustrate your story, perhaps with a picture showing what is happening now and what it will be like in the future when your ideas have been carried out. Or you could show what the people in your story will be doing.

For Parents and Teachers: Please help by encouraging discussion of the issues and possible solutions. It is likely that the children will need to gather some information before they write their story.

We will judge the entries for (age appropriate) creativity, knowledge writing ability, illustrations.
Please illustrate your story and use A4 sized paper only. The deadline will be Friday 22nd July.

There will be prizes for each age group: 6 and under, 7-10, 11-14, 15-18
We hope to make the best stories into a book to be available locally, as we did with the previous Lincoln stories. The National Library has asked for a copy of our other books – so your story might be there too!
Please attach an entry form to your entry (see Miss Sheppard). You can enter more than 1 story.
