Wigfield Farm is holding a short story competition for local youngsters on the theme of ‘Once Upon a Time at the Farm’.
Our farm is running the competition in partnership with Barnsley Libraries to get children of all abilities to use their imagination this summer to write a short story.
Children aged 12 and under across South Yorkshire are being asked to let their creativity show and write about their ventures at the Farm or about the adventures of the animals when no one is around.
The short story must be no more than 500 words and can also include illustrations. Entries can be submitted from Monday 24 July and no later than Sunday 20 August, 11:59pm with the winner announced on Friday 25 August.
The winner of the competition will see their book produced as an e-book and made available in the Barnsley Libraries catalogue, as well as receiving a printed copy of their book and an exclusive Wigfield Farm bundle.
Entries can be scanned and emailed to: BarnsleyLibraryEnquiries@Barnsley.gov.uk; delivered to one of the libraries in Barnsley; posted into the submission box at the Wigfield Farm Summer Show; or handed to a Barnsley Library representative at Wigfield Farm.
