Mayoral Make-A-Book Literacy Challenge

Mayoral Make-A-Book Literacy Challenge 2018

Mayoral Make-A-Book winners If you are a preschool or primary school aged child who lives or studies in the City of Charles Sturt, you are eligible to enter our annual book making competition, which has been running since 1979.

The Mayoral Make-A-Book Literacy Challenge is an extremely popular community program for budding young authors and illustrators. Last year, there were 633 amazing original entries, with 30 individuals and 3 class entries winning some wonderful prizes. It gives you a taste of what it is like to create your own book. It’s also a fun, creative way of practising study skills and processes you’ll eventually be doing at higher levels in school.

Your entry can be:

  • a story, graphic novel, informational, poetry. . . and on any topic
  • English or multilingual
  • a physical book, eBook or audio book
  • created by yourself, with friends or even your whole class
  • up to 1000 words in length

Entries for 2018 Mayoral Make-a-Book Literacy Challenge are open from Thursday 1 February to Thursday 31 May 2018.

Celebrate the literacy achievements of children from the City of Charles Sturt at the Mayoral Make-A-Book Festival.
