Write us a story – and win an iPad for you and your school!

PJ Library and WIZO are teaming up with the Jewish News for its second young writers’ competition – this time centred on theme of ‘never giving up’.

We are calling on budding writers to pen their thoughts on perseverance, to be in with a chance of winning an iPad for themselves and their school! Our fantastic competition is sponsored by Mamilla Architecture and Design.

WIZO, the Women’s International Zionist Organisation, is the largest independent social welfare organisation in Israel, supporting more than 800 projects across the country at every stage of life.

What you need to know!

Write a story or poem, in no more than 300 words, about a time when you or someone else persevered, never gave up and achieved a dream.

The competition is open to boys and girls in two categories: primary (ages seven to 11) and secondary (ages 11 to 18). The prizes, sponsored by Mamilla Architecture and Design, include an iPad for the winner in each category and one for their school. Runners-up will receive book vouchers for themselves and the equivalent value for their schools. PJ Library will also provide a fantastic goodie pack of books for the winners and runners-up of the primary category!
