Youth Competitions

For many years Rotary has supported a variety of youth competitions and we are to revitalise our Young Writer and Young Photographer competitions in Pershore.

The Young Writer competition aims to encourage young people to use their writing skills to write with imagination and creativity.

The three age groups are:

Junior - up to and including 10 years old

Intermediate - 11 to 13 years old

Senior - 14 to 17 years old

If you have read articles in this paper by Gregory Sidaway and Romy Kemp, then you will know how talented they are, and our competition gives others a chance to show off their creative writing skills.

The Young Photographer competition similarly aims to encourage young people to experiment with photography, use digital and/or traditional methods of photography, demonstrate interpretation of the topic and express ideas through the medium of photography.

The 3 age groups are the same as for the Young Writer competition.

Details of these competitions are being circulated to local schools and other young peoples’ community organisations.
