A Bishop Luffa School pupil has been named a winner of Sussex based Evonprint’s ‘Get Kids Writing’ competition.
Ellie Roberts has now seen her short story turned into a printed book. Ellie, aged 14, won the secondary school category with her story ‘Princesses Love Pizza’ and as well as receiving five printed copies of her book, she also won a £50 Amazon voucher and £75 worth of book tokens for Bishop Luffa School.
Two pupils from The Weald Community School in Billingshurst were chosen as runners-up in the competition. Abi Harrison and Nicky Kemp, both aged 14 and from The Weald Community School, were delighted to each receive a printed copy of their short stories called ‘Adventures of Adam the Ant’ and ‘Metamorphosis’ respectively.
Adam Rowland from Evonprint said: “We’re very passionate about education at Evonprint, so this competition was all about getting children creative by showing off their skills. There were some fantastic entries and we had a hard time choosing the winners. I’d like to say huge congratulations to Ellie, Abi and Kicky, and thank you to all the children who got involved.”
