Children’s author backing for fire service writing challenge

26 Apr

An award-winning local children’s author has been named head judge in a fire service led creative writing challenge.

Barnsley born Caryl Hart, now living in Bakewell, Derbyshire has volunteered to judge the South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue competition, which calls on youngsters to send in their best piece of creative writing.

The fire service hopes the competition will inspire dozens of local youngsters to think about fire safety, whilst putting their literacy and creative skills to the test.

A LEGO City fire station will be awarded to the winner, as chosen by Caryl, author of popular children’s books including Don’t Dip Your Chips, Welcome to Alien School and Supermarket Zoo. Five runners up will also win a signed copy of one of Caryl’s books.

Education advocate Julie Claytor, said: “Children are an important audience for us, particularly as they are often the best advocates for fire safety at home. We know from school visits and other education work that they often pass on vital fire safety messages to their families and we hope this competition will be another opportunity for us to spread that learning.”

Caryl said: “I know there are lots of brilliant young writers in South Yorkshire – I’ve met a lot of you. So get out your pens, pencils, computers, phones and tablets and get writing. I can’t wait to read your stories!”

The contest is open to all primary school aged children in South Yorkshire. The theme is ‘a day in the life of a firefighter’ and the stories should aim to include at least one fire safety message.

Children can submit an entry by post to Writing Competition, South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue, 197 Eyre Street, Sheffield, S1 3FG or by emailing press@syfire.gov.uk with ‘Writing Competition’ in the subject box, before the closing date of 13 May 2016.
