Following the incredible success of our Schools Writing Competition earlier this year, we’re excited to be launching next year’s competition and would like to invite all aspiring writers aged between 10 and 13 to take part in our Dignity Action Day Writing Competition for 2020.

The competition, which we’ve decided to turn into an annual event, aims to promote awareness of everyone’s right to dignity, and is timed to celebrate Dignity Action Day, a national event each February which highlights more respectful ways of behaving towards vulnerable people.

Aspire Home Carers and Pelham House Care Home  is encouraging young writers to have their say about Dignity in an Writing Competition that is open to anyone between the ages of 10 and 13.

This year the competition kicks off with an exciting “Writers Workshop” for all those who enter. This in itself makes the competition well worth entering as the many years of experience between our judges (three locally recognised writers and editors) will be shared with those attending.

Prizes will include: Trophies & Certificates, gift vouchers, and books by Dorling Kindersley.

The competition is being supported by Creative Quarterhouse,  Folkestone & Hythe Express,  and Academy FM Radio . The winners will be given the opportunity of reading their stories live to Folkestone.

Closing date for registration to the competition is 11th January 2020. More information and full details of how to enter can be found on the Registration form below. Please register early so we can keep you posted on all the upcoming events and dates for the competition.
