This is a great competition for anyone who loves writing and has a keen interest in journalism and current affairs! To enter the competition, you must write a column of no more than 300 words about something that is happening in your local area or school or an issue affecting your family or friends that you would like to raise awareness about. A column is where the writer gives their opinion on an important issue, which appear in newspapers, magazines and web sites.
The closing date is 7th July and is open to 8 to 18 year olds. The winners get their own column published in First News and win a bundle of STABILO stationery products worth £1,000 for their school.
