En­tries wanted

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Call­ing all young writ­ers.

The Pass­chen­daele So­ci­ety is look­ing for en­tries in its an­nual story writ­ing com­pe­ti­tion be­fore the Septem­ber 30 close off date.

If you are 16 or un­der you might like to write about one of your own rel­a­tives who fought at the Bat­tle of Pass­chen­daele.

Or maybe you’ve read a bit about the bat­tle and would like to put a more gen­eral piece to­gether.

Ei­ther way, all en­tries will be posted on the Cen­tral Leader web­site for ev­ery­one to see.

Your work will also be judged by mem­bers of the so­ci­ety and you could be among those cho­sen to place a poppy in mem­ory of the fallen dur­ing a spe­cial cer­e­mony at the Auck­land War Me­mo­rial Mu­seum on Oc­to­ber 12. En­tries should be no longer than 250 words.

En­trants are en­cour­aged to talk with older rel­a­tives and use ad­di­tional bi­o­graph­i­cal in­for­ma­tion avail­able on web­sites.

Back­ground de­tail is also avail­able at pass chen­dae­le­so­ci­ety.org. Send your sto­ries to on­line. ad­min@snl.co.nz and re­mem­ber to type Pass­chen­daele Com­pe­ti­tion in the sub­ject line. And watch for your piece on­line at cen­tral­leader.co.nz.
