Final Call: My Place Competition Closes This Week

Final Call: My Place Competition Closes This Week

Presented in partnership between ALEA (Australian Literacy Educators’ Association) and the ACTF, the My Place Competition asks students in Year 3 to Year 10 to write about everyday life in their own neighbourhoods.   

With entries closing this Friday, it is time for students to finalise their work – perhaps with the help of our teaching resources! Entries can be uploaded via the competition page in either Word or PDF format.

Entries will be shortlisted by an ACTF / ALEA panel, and My Place author Nadia Wheatley will judge the shortlisted entries. Winning students and their teachers will receive a range of prizes, including signed copies of My Place, Walker Books prize packs, ACTF vouchers, and ALEA membership (see the competition page for full details).

Winners will be announced in the ACTF Education eNews in early Term Three. Stay tuned!
