BBC 500 Words Competition

BBC’s 500 Words Competition is the UK’s largest children’s story writing competition! For ages 5-11, the challenge is to ‘write a story you would love to read’. The story can be about anything you like – as creative as you’d like! – but has to be 500 words or less.

Entries can be submitted online by an adult, and all information can be found here:

Happy writing!
