Announcing the story writing competition winners for 2019/20 

After months of deliberation, our brilliant judges are thrilled to be able to announce the winners of the Real Heroes Read Books story writing competition. 

We received hundreds of entries from children, young people and adults across Cornwall and beyond, and it was a joy to witness the level of creativity shown across the three different categories.

Each of the winning entries were chosen by our judges because we felt that they delivered an entertaining and original concept that would be loved by children under 5, as well as helping to encourage good language skills. 

And so, without further ado, the winners are...

1st Prize - Clover Oates, 2nd Prize - Jowan Ashby 

1st Prize - Max Clarkson, 2nd Prize - Esme Jane, 3d Prize - Belle J 

1st Prize - Harry Gallie, 2nd Prize - Archie Borlase, 3rd Prize - Eva Reid
