Writers, this is for you!!

Celebrate Mooroolbark is running a Writing Competition for students, sponsored by Victoria’s Deputy Premier and Minister for Education, James Merlino MP! Winners will be awarded cash prizes by Mr Merlino himself, on the main stage of the festival between 11:40am and 12 noon.

Explore the ways we can individually and collectively sustain, preserve and beautify our world and its resources, or write an imaginative piece around the theme of environmental sustainability. You might like to consider the following questions to get you started:

  • What concerns you most about the environment – locally/nationally/globally?  
  • Why/How is it easy to “be green”?
  • Why is “being green” important now and in the future?
  • Imagine a world/city/town where everyone lived sustainably, what would it look like?
  • Can you imagine the future and how people’s lives might be different to ours if environmental sustainability is/is not adopted by people today?

Entry is a Gold Coin and entries should be submitted to the Mooroolbark Community Centre no later than Friday, March 17.

Head over to our Writing Competition page for more details on how to enter.

Stig Wemyss Author

Stig Wemyss, hilarious character and Australia’s most loved narrator of audio books for children and young adults, is joining us at Celebrate Mooroolbark, at 12.30 and again at 1.30pm in the MCC Auditorium.
Stig Wemyss

Stig is the author of The Tripp Diaries, a wildly funny series of audio books about an Aussie family on a road trip around Australia. 12-year old Nick Tripp knows his Dad is crazy and this epic adventure just proves it! Who’d want to be crammed in the family station wagon for, like a year or something, with a whinging nine-year-old, the fossil parents and worst of all, his 16-year old sister? Come and hear Stig Wemyss tell us some of the wacky tales from The Tripp Diaries. Dads, you are not going to want to miss this!
