Two share coveted gong
THE South Perth Young Writers Awards were presented at a ceremony on July 20 that celebrated the 31st anniversary of the awards. This year almost 400 entries were received, which reflects the passion young people have for using their creative writing skills to share stories. Fifteen winners were acknowledged for their outstanding efforts in five age categories across primary and secondary schools. The Christobel Mattingley Bronze Medallion, awarded by the judging panel to the most outstanding entry in any given year, was this year presented to two students. It is only the third time in the history of the award that this has happened. They were awarded to Penrhos College students Eleanor Jones and Jane McGuire.
