Storylines Festival is nearly here!

Events begin in Wellington on 8 June and inish in Auckland on 15 June, visiting Northland and Christchurch in between.

This year there is an exciting new writing competition for two age groups 4-8 and 9-12 years that children can enter before the festival begins, with the winning stories being read aloud by a celebrity at a Storylines free Family Days.
The story must be no longer than one A4 page and must include a radio and a book. Otherwise let your imaginations run wild!

Classic Hits have sponsored this competition and there will be book prizes
for the winners at each Family Day, with a grand winner selected from the
whole country who will win $500 plus have their story recorded to play on
the Classic Hits That’s the Story children’s programme.
Wellington entries should close on 30 May but I’ll accept entries from over
the weekend too, entries for Auckland, Northland and Christchurch close on 6
June so get those kids writing.

Entries must be submitted on an official entry form from the Classic Hits
website – select your area and click on the Storylines
banner on the page to find the entry form.

There will be writing and illustration competitions on the day at each
family day too, if children don’t get entries in on time for the advance
competition, and at Auckland Family Day we will have a photography
competition with the theme of Catch a Kid Reading with prizes for adults and
children so get those cameras clicking and bring your entries to the Aotea
Centre on 15 June.
Family Days are at Te Whaea, Wellington on Sunday 8 June, Whangarei Library
on 14 June, Heaton Intermediate School on 14 June and Aotea Centre, Auckland
on 15 June. Full details available on the Storylines website
