In October 2013 we launched our Let's Get Writing competition for the academic year. In 2014, based on feedback from teachers, we gave the competition a superhero theme for the rest of the academic year.
We received 45,000 entries from over 1,100 schools nationwide! Once all the books has been published our editors had the hard but rewarding task of selecting 3 school winners and shortlisting 20 pupils' work, which was sent to our judge, poet and author Roger Stevens, who chose the 5 pupil winners. Roger had a tough time picking just 5 winners, in fact he chose to highly commend an extra pupil for their work too!
Congratulations to all our winners and thank you to everyone who took part.
Each pupil has won a £50 National Book Token and have the opportunity to showcase some of their work on their own page on the Young Writers' website (watch this space!)
