Join in the 2019 Stories on Values competition and showcase your children's talent
Now's the time to take part in this exciting “Stories on Values” competition. Children from all over the world, aged from 7 to 11, are eager to show just how much values today are influencing what people are thinking and doing and how values shape lives, wellbeing and relationships - and they are keen to submit their own stories based on their chosen values.
All the inspirational judges, Ed Mayo, Dr Paquita de Zulueta and James Minter, are much looking forward to reading the very best of the imaginative and perceptive work that we have come to expect from today's increasingly 'values literate' children.
And Galia Durant, illustrator and musician for our new programme for ages 4 to 11, THE BIG THINK, is just as keen to judge the children's artwork.
Here are the Guidelines on How To Enter.
The closing day, 17 October, coincides with the climax of the 2019 WORLD VALUES DAY campaign.
