Ramadan Writing Competition (Ages 11-14)

It looks like this is a UK-based writing competition.


Writing competition for 11 to 14 year olds.

The aim of the competition is to increase understanding and awareness of Ramadan and to encourage young people to develop research and creative writing skills.

The subject of the competition is "understanding, personal experience, gains and learning through the Fast". This theme can be taken in a broad context and we're looking for a wide range of entries, which could include factual writing, fiction, writing reflecting personal experiences, short stories etc. These could link to the theme in any way, for example by referring to Ramadan directly, or by looking at fasting in other contexts and religions e.g. Shrove Tuesday.

The work must contain 150 to 200 words.

5 winning entries will be chosen and each will receive a £20 book token.

The winning entries will be publishe on the Oldham Libraries Readers and Writers website.

Closing date: Friday 26th September
