We announce the second International Short Story Contest for school children, for the year 2016. The last date of submission of stories will be August 31st 2016. Results will be announced on the 15th of September.
Our first International Short Story Contest was a resounding success, and it embodied the mission and values that guide us, namely, to provide a platform for children worldwide to express themselves and to respond to issues they face every day, creatively as stories. The next contest will also have the same guiding mission and values. As usual, entry is free. You can win attractive prize money, certificates and publication opportunities.
