The YCAA Children’s Short Story theme for 2018 was #only joking.
All the shortlisted entries were judged by the children’s author and storyteller Beth Webb, who also gave a talk with some valuable advice to our winners.
The competition was open to all Year 5 and 6 pupils in the Western Gazette distribution area.
Congratulations to the winner Cody Southern, with our two runners up being Imogen Teare and Edith Clarke. There were also seven Highly Commended stories. All 10 winners received Waterstones book tokens, with their winning stories being displayed in the children’s section of Yeovil Waterstones.
