THE BAD NEWS: We have only had a handful of entries for our news writing competitions far!

THE GOOD NEWS: There are still 17 days left for your pupils to enter our exciting news writing competition.

A couple of months ago WRITE WAI PR & COPYWRITING SERVICES  and Tutor Doctor Colchester North launched our News Writing Competition 2014 and the deadline is fast approaching.

But so far we have had very few entries.

REMEMBER: Your school could win £100 of Amazon vouchers if one of your pupils wins. The writer of the winning entry will be awarded a Kindle Fire, second place will receive £50 in vouchers and thirds place gets £25 in vouchers.

In addition, our Sponsor the Gazette, Colchester, will publish the top three winners and give the writers a tour of their news room and let them sit in on a news conference.

Please participate.

Full details and competition rules are below and on the attachment.
