Schools still have time to submit entries for an annual poetry competition.

The deadline for entries for the EDP and Briar Chemicals Young Poets of the Year competition has been extended a few days until July 23, to give schools the last few days of term to submit pupils’ poems.

The theme of this year’s competition is Strange Surprise and entries are invited in two age categories, eight to nine-year-olds and 10 to 11-year-olds.

Prizes donated by Briar include £100 for the winner in each age category and £500 for their schools.

The final stage judge is Tom Blofeld, children’s author and co-creator of the BeWILDerwood adventure park.

The two winners will also each receive a VVIP family pass for BeWILDerwood and BeWILDerbook bundles. Plus, they will have the chance to spend a morning at the EDP. Four runners-up in each age group will win book bundles.

Briar Chemicals will also donate £500 to Autism Anglia, a charity chosen by Tom Blofeld.

Poems must be entered via schools, which have been sent entry forms.

For any further information or entry forms, call 01603 242311.
