Putting pen to paper could bag students a �100 prize

Young people with an opinion to voice could bag themselves a £100 prize as part of our new Letters to the Editor competition - and now they’ve got an extra week to enter.

The letters page is one of the most read features of any paper. It gives readers the chance to have their say on our stories, or any issues, either local or national, that they might feel passionate about.

Youngsters aged 11 to 16 are invited to submit letters of no more than 200 words.

The best entries will be published on a special letters page before the end of the summer term, and readers will be asked to vote for the overall prize winner.

Judges will be looking for letters written from the heart, in the students’ own style, which will grab the readers’ attention with a persuasive or perhaps even funny argument.

Entries can be from individuals or submitted via school and should be emailed to dewsburyeditorial@ywng.co.uk by Friday, June 14. Please put Letters Competition in the subject box.
