The Winter Reading Challenge
The competition encourages you to read over the Christmas period and once you submit three book reviews online, the website unlocks little games and a certificate. This competition is run by the same organisation behind the Summer Reading Challenge.
Wicked Young Writers Award
The competition requires you to submit an original piece of writing (no longer than 750 words). The prizes are fabulous: a £50 book token, tickets to see Wicked at the Apollo Theatre in London and all 120 finalists are published in an anthology. The judges include some very well known authors (Cressida Cowell and Michael Morpurgo amongst others).
