Library Competition

Calling little scribblers! Have you got what it takes to write a truly amazing story for the chance to win 480 books for your school? Welsh Libraries have teamed up with their friends Alzheimer’s Society Cymru to help raise awareness about dementia and they need your incredible story.

Every day 480 people across the UK develop dementia and memory loss plays a part in someone’s journey with dementia. Think about some of your favourite memories…a trip to the seaside with your grandad, baking with gran or maybe even fighting dragons at a castle! Now, turn these wonderful memories into a spectacular story.

Your story will be judged by authors and people living with dementia across Wales. If you’re our winning writer you’ll receive 480 books for your school*, a RocketBook and a £50 Amazon voucher to spend on whatever you want. There will also be prizes for two lucky runners-up.

Please hand your story in to your local library – no longer than 480 words. You will need to write clearly your name, age and school (and your class name too) at the end of your story. Do You Remember When_English_White Logo (2)We welcome stories written in any language. If you’d like to get really creative and draw a picture to illustrate your story, we’d love to see them. You can also email your story as a Word document to dementiafriendly@cardiff.gov.uk

Thank you and we look forward to reading all about of your wonderful memories.

*Welsh Libraries will work closely with the winning school to carefully select the 480 books. For more details, please contact dementiafriendly@cardiff.gov.uk
