Bite-size Teacher Webinar: 2020 My Place Competition

Bite-size Teacher Webinar: 2020 My Place Competition

The 2020 My Place Competition asks students to tell the story of their own ‘place’ during this historically significant time. Teachers, learn more about this national creative writing competition on Thursday 28 May.

Presented in partnership between ALEA Victoria (Australian Literacy Educators’ Association) and the ACTF (Australian Children’s Television Foundation), the My Place Competition is open to students in Year 3 to Year 10. Through short stories, poetry, and other creative writing forms, entrants will paint a picture of everyday Australian life in 2020. Entries can be submitted between 25 May 2020 – 26 June 2020.

Join ALEA Victoria State Director Julie Shepherd and ACTF Curriculum Officer Janine Kelly in this 15-minute chat to learn more about our engaging creative writing competition for Years 3–10 students. Participants will learn about free content and resources to scaffold students in their writing, and there will be time for teacher questions.

Register here and we will be in touch with a Zoom link for this session.  

Date: Thursday 28 May

Time: 4:00pm – 4:15pm (AEST)
