Love Letters to Summer: a Writing & Art Competition for Young People

What do you love about Summer? Is it the longer days, the lack of planned activities, or sleeping in?  Let's capture these ideas and show our love for Summer.

The competition is open to Young People aged 10 - 25 who live, work or study in Brimbank. The piece of work can be a short essay, poem, artwork or any piece of writing based on the theme 'Love Letters to Summer'. 

Prizes are up for grabs at the end of the competition, and entries will also be collated into a publication showcasing your talents.
