Coram Voice, a charity that helps young kids in care, has launched their annual writing competition!
The theme of this year’s competition is ‘What Makes Life Good’ and the call for entries is now on.
Actor Peter Capaldi who once played Dr. Who is a judge of this year’s competition. He spoke to Sean all about it!
You can submit entries online and they can be in any written form, from poems to short stories and raps or even newspaper articles!
If you need some advice on your entry then listen to what Ryan, last year’s winner, had to say about the competition when he spoke to Bex earlier this week.
There’s a 500 word limit on entries and the competition is grouped into four age categories: primary school, lower secondary school (age 11-14), upper secondary school (age 15-18) and care leavers (under 25).
Since the theme is ‘What Makes Life Good’, you could write about activities that you enjoy doing yourself, things that make life easier for other people, or simple things like nature and the outside. It can be anything!
The competition is only open to people with experience of the care system.
And remember, if you are in care, leaving care, or need help from Coram, their Always Heard helpline is free to call.
