Military children can win the chance to have their very own story illustrated and added to our Little Troopers Treasures app for lots of other military families to enjoy!
Open to military children aged 8 -14, the theme of the story competition is ‘my military life’ and children are encouraged to write a story that in some way reflects on or relates to their day-to-day experiences of being a military child.
All entries will be judged by a panel including published children’s authors, Donna David and Tom Palmer, and the winning story will be professionally illustrated and published in eBook format on the Little Troopers Treasures story-recording app.
Entries into the competition should be between 200 and 500 words and can be written in prose or rhyming verse. To help children get inspired, Little Troopers resident author, Donna David, has recorded a short creative writing workshop you can watch here.
The deadline for entries is on 14th October.
Please use the downloadable template for the story entries.
Entries are welcomed from children within the British Armed Forces community and schools are welcome to send in entries from their military children.
More details can be found here.
Little Troopers Treasures was launched four years ago to help military children stay connected to their parents during periods of separation and since then more than 8,000 stories have been recorded and shared by families.
