Writers, this is for you!!

[EDIT: The deadline for entries has been extended to Friday 17th March, 2017]

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.

Winning Entries – 2014 Writing Competition

“Once there were 2 purple crazy cats and their names were Levi and Isla. They loved to smile all day long. But one day they had a problem they lost their smiles when they were playing in a ball pit…”
What happened next?! This is an excerpt from story by Levi D from Pembroke Primary School – Mooroolbark Vic. Levi’s story won Second Prize in the Prep-Grade 2 division at Celebrate Mooroolbark 2014 and you can read the rest of this story and more at http://www.mooroolbark.org.au/
The fantastic drawings that accompany Levi’s stories are by Cameron B from Warranwood Primary School.
