Short Story competition

The project ran a short story competition in partnership with Leeds Big Bookend and had a wonderful response with 135 entries from children aged between 7 and 16, demonstrating their enthusiasm and imagination even for a difficult subject such as the First World War.

At a special award ceremony held at the Royal Armouries in Leeds on 14th November 2015, six lucky winners were awarded certificates and heard their pieces read out by the judges and authors Dan Ingram-Brown and Susan Burnett.
