THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED, THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE WHO ENTERED.
Bullying UK, part of Family Lives and the FriXion erasable pen from Pilot Pen UK today launch their #writeitout anti bullying creative writing competition to help parents, pupils and teachers tackle bullying throughout the UK.
The competition wants schools, families and adult carers to encourage pupils and children in their care to step away from their laptop or hand-held device and explore through pen and paper how we can #writeitout.
The winning school/youth organisation, and individual will receive a prize of a Pilot Pen UK educational pack containing FriXion erasable pens and colouring pens and a range of rollerball pens, fountain pens and whiteboard markers.
The competition is open to all UK residents (including residents of the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man). You must be aged between 6 and 18 years on the closing date 13 November 2015 in order to enter.
All entries will be judged in the first instance by members of Family Lives. This first judging panel will decide which entries should be put forward to the second stage judging. The first judging round will select the 10 best entries in each of the following categories:
The second judging stage will look at the 10 best entries in each age category and be carried out by a panel of Family Lives and external judges. This panel will consider the 5 best entries for each age. Please do not use any swear words or rude words on your poster.
