WINNERS OF THE RISING STAR WRITING COMPETITION

We are happy to announce the winners of the just concluded second edition of The Rising Star Writing Competition, tagged “Rising Star Writing Competition, Season Two”. 

Just like in the first edition, this edition on was keenly contested as there were many wonderful and incisive entries from children in different schools across the country.  However, just a few entries can be openly rewarded with prizes. Some of the key criteria used included the writer’s ability to humanise nature, the extent to which the work relates and affects the human person;  the beauty, flow and rhythm of language; poetic licence and tone for poetry entrants; structure and organization of work; format and style and spelling and appropriate use of  punctuation marks. It is important to note that in Rising Star Writing Competition, every participant is a winner.

We are grateful to our sponsors and partners in this project, Greenlife Pharmaceuticals, The bank of Industry and Tripplesea Group for helping make this season a reality. We sincerely hope for more participation and support in the coming editions of the competition.  We look forward to more robust involvement by schools and corporate institutions in the coming edition as well as greater participation of pupils and students from public and private schools across Nigeria.

As you are aware The Rising Star Writing Competition and Awards is an annual children creative writing competition and awards organized by The Writers Corner Lagos in collaboration with Vuvuzela Communication Limited to help to develop children’s creative writing skills. We thank you for being part of this noble project.
