Castle School, Thornbury
Competition with a Twist!!
Please Sir, I want some more...
Thanks to the Authors' Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS) someone in your group could win themselves an invitation to this year's CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Awards as well as a Samsung Galaxy Tablet, £500 of books for your school library and more...
To celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of one of the UK's greatest ever writers, Charles Dickens, the 2012 ALCS competition for shadowers is all about twisting a sentence from Oliver Twist.
ALCS want to see how the participants can take a classic line from one of our greatest writers and turn it into a story in just 140 words.
There will be one overall first prize winner; this will be awarded to either an individual student or a group entry.
For the winner of the best overall story:
Tickets for one (plus a chaperone) to the CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway awards ceremony on 14 June 2012 in London
A Samsung Galaxy Tablet
A selection of Carnegie and Greenaway shortlisted books
£500 worth of library books for your school library
2 x Runner up prizes
A selection of shortlisted Carnegie & Greenaway Children’s books
To enter this fantastic competition with a twist, visit the ALCS website at http://www.alcs.co.uk/News---Members--information now.
The closing date for entries to the competition is Friday 25 May 2012.
Best of luck!
