If you’re interested in writing for children – or you have a child who loves books – or if you’d just like a fun day out, mixing with the literati, then you might be interested in this competition to win tickets to a book award ceremony….
The Red House Children’s Book Award is the only national book award voted for entirely by children. Hundreds of books have been read and voted for by children from around the country and the Red House Children’s Book Award 2011 shortlist has been announced! See details here.
If you’d like to attend the Red House Children’s Book Award ceremony at Birmingham’s Botanical Gardens on Saturday 11 June, why not enter the (writing!) competition which closes on 3rd May.
The winner of the competition will “meet some of the country’s top authors and illustrators, enjoy a delicious lunch and be among the first to hear who is crowned winner of the Red House Children’s Book Award 2011.”
To enter, you just need to say, in 300 words or less, why you would like to attend the awards ceremony. The prize includes a ticket and travel for 1 child and 1 adult.
