Local children are being invited to enter this year’s Chorleywood Bookshop annual competition ahead of the closing date on 9 March.
The theme for this year’s annual competition is laughter, with anyone under 16-years-old invited to enter with the competition divided into age categories.
For Key Stage 1 pupils, aged between five and seven, they have to draw a picture of a character from a book that made you laugh, explaining why that character was chosen.
For Key Stage 2 pupils, aged between seven and 11, they have to use the letters of the word laughter to make up an acrostic. Each letter should begin a sentence or phrase about a character or event from a book which amused you. The eight examples can be taken from the same or different books.
Foe 11 to 16-year-olds they must write a short story of approximately 200 words on any topic but somewhere must contain the phrase “the sound of laughter”.
Kira Gibson, from Chorleywood Bookshop said: “The competition is really popular and we are lucky that so many local children and schools get behind it.
“The standard is really high and that is why it is such a joy to have the competition return each year.”
Once entries have been completed they can be handed to a teacher, providing your school is participating, or dropped off at the book shop name, age, school and contact number on the back.
