7 – 11 year olds to write about their favourite value, with prizes for the 8 winning stories.  All entries should be in by 12th October.

To celebrate World Values Day, the Human Values Foundation invites schools and other organisations involved with children from 7 to 11 years old from all over the world to take part in our story writing competition.  The stories must be original and centred around one chosen value (see list of values below).  Stories should be in English, no more than 400 words long and can be illustrated, although that is not mandatory.

All stories must be submitted by 12 October 2016.

Prizes of book tokens will be awarded for the best 8 entries, with a top prize of £100 worth of tokens, and certificates will be awarded for all entries that are published.  Stories will be featured on this website and on the World Values Day website where they can be seen and enjoyed all around the world, and also on social media platforms and in our written and digital publications, including a booklet to be published online early next year featuring a wide cross section of the stories (and illustrations). This booklet will be available free on our website and in PDF format.

Winners will be announced on Monday 26th November.
