Calling budding young writers!

Do you like telling or sharing stories? Do you like writing stories and illustrating them?

Inspired by our exhibition 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea' we are running a children's writing competition with prizes to be won in different age categories.

Using the 'Tiger Who Came to Tea' by Judith Kerr as inspiration we are looking for short stories to be submitted in the following age categories:

Under 7's

The closing date for entries is Monday 28th February 2022

Terms and Conditions

  • All submissions should be a maximum of 500 words
  • The stories can be illustrated as well, although this is not essential to entry
  • All submissions should be sent in with the name and age of the child on them and the contact name and telephone number or email address of a parent/guardian.
  • Send all entries through to or drop into Charnwood Museum during normal opening hours addressed as 'Tiger Writing Competition'
  • Please note that if you submit an original piece of work, we will not be able to return it to the sender
