There is just one week left for children across Norfolk to submit their entries into a creative writing competition.

Norfolk County Council's Write On Norfolk contest for 5 to 13-year-olds has already received more than 120 entries since June, and the final day for submissions is August 31.

Alison Thomas, the council's deputy leader and one of the judges, said: 'Last year I enjoyed reading some wonderful stories and poems from young people across Norfolk, and I hope that this year we get even more children taking part.'

The competition is split into three age categories - 5-7, 8-10 and 11-13. The only rules are that the story must be a maximum of 500 words and it must contain some link to Norfolk.

The entry can be a short story, poem, script or even song lyrics and must be submitted online at www.norfolk.gov.uk/writeonPrizes will include Jarrold vouchers and an Amazon Fire tablet.
