Specsavers is once again sponsoring the children’s categories at this year’s Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards.
They are proud to support these awards as they have a strong appreciation for literacy and recognise its importance amongst the youth of today.
To celebrate this sponsorship Specsavers has launched a nationwide short story competition for children and teens up to the age of sixteen. Specsavers together with Bord Gáis are inviting your little ones to put pen to paper and write a short story inspired by the picture above.
Taking inspiration from a cartoon version of a typical ‘Should’ve gone to Specsavers’ moment, children from across the country are being challenged to create a short story in 500 words or less beginning with the sentence ‘I told you not to pedal so fast…’
So why not switch of the TV, put away the iPad and challenge your child’s imagination and let them get creative. You’ll have fun seeing how their minds work as the dream up and adventurous story.
Their imagination and creative juices flow could help them to win all the shortlisted titles in the Specsavers Irish Children’s Book of the Year category from this year’s Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards. Not only that, their school library will also receive a donation of some of the best Irish books from the last year. They’ll surely be popular in the school yard with a prize like this!
The competition is open to all children and teenagers up to 16 years of age and the closing date for applications is Friday November 29.
Use as much creativity and imagination as possible. Now, all that’s left to say is:
Ready… Steady... Write!
