Young writ­ers win

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Quick News -

WESTERN sub­urbs word­smiths scooped the 2015 Tim Win­ton Awards for Young Writ­ers last week.

Seven-year-old Ruby Bell, from Pres­by­te­rian Ladies Col­lege, won first prize in the lower pri­mary school age cat­e­gory for her story An Itchy Scratchy Prob­lem.

Shen­ton Col­lege stu­dents took out two awards, with 14-year-old Danah Blache awarded sec­ond place in the lower sec­ondary cat­e­gory for Clyde Plat­ters P.I. and Sacha Puls­ford (18) third in the up­per sec­ondary cat­e­gory for Shat­tered.

Ned­lands Pri­mary School stu­dent Evie He­witt was equal third in the mid­dle pri­mary cat­e­gory with Lola Hill from St Hilda’s Ju­nior School.

City of Su­bi­aco Act­ing Mayor Scott Ar­buckle said this year’s sub­mis­sions were in­cred­i­ble.

“This com­pe­ti­tion is a great op­por­tu­nity for tal­ented young writ­ers to show­case their skills and this year’s en­trants did not dis­ap­point,” he said.

The win­ning sto­ries will be ex­hib­ited at the Su­bi­aco Li­brary un­til Septem­ber 21 and are avail­able to read online at www.su­bi­aco.wa.gov.au.
