image of a pencil with the words 'writing competition'We have launched a 2024 writing competition just for children and young people who live locally.

We would love to hear from children and young people around the theme… ‘What it’s like to be me’.

Run in partnership with our Council of Governors, the competition is open to children and young people who:

  • Live in Derby and Derbyshire
  • Are aged 18 or under. 

Young people should send us a poem, prose, letter, diary entry or blog post on the theme of 'what it's like to be me'. It must be their own, original work. The word limit is 500 words. Learn more on the competition page.

How can I help spread the word?

If you would like to share the details of the competition with local young people, please...

If you or a young person has any questions, please email or telephone 01332 623723.
