Mayors Short Story LogoIt's on again...


The Mayors' Short Story Challenge 2019

Alexandrina, City of Victor Harbour and Yankalilla Councils have been running the Mayors' Short Story Challenge since 2010 and we invite you to join the 2019 challenge.

The creative writing challenge is held during term two each year for school aged children, from reception to year 10. 


This year's challenge

There are four group sections. The winner from each section will receive a $50 gift voucher. The overall winner for each Council will receive a $100 gift voucher to South Seas Book Shop, donated by the Friends of the Library. The school from which the overall winning entry originated, for each Council, will receive $1000. 

We would like to thank all Principals, Teacher-Librarians, Student Service Officers and parents who support this community initiative and encouraged their students to enter in 2018.
