The 2016 RSYWA writing competition is now open. This year several changes have been made to the age categories enabling the year 3 students to participate for the first time. Entry is open to all students, years 3 - 12 attending school in the Mid West region. The awards are a way of encouraging students in the art of creative writing. There are two categories, prose or poetry. Students are eligible to enter both categories, but only one entry is permitted.
Entries close on 1 July 2016. The entry form can be accessed via this link.
