For this year's Creative Writing Competition we are drawing inspiration from Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls and Sustainable Development Goal 13 - taking action to combat climate change.
Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls was written by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo and features biographies, aimed at children, about girls and women who have achieved incredible goals and often changed their communities and the world along the way.
Here is an overview of the writing challenge:
Your written element should be a children's biography about a local, national, or regional climate change "rebel". Your piece should be about a real figure, but we encourage you to be creative in how you write your entry, for example through your use of narrative features and language.
We encourage you to explore one of these themes within your biography:
- What does it mean to be a climate rebel?
- What does a climate rebel look like?
Your visual element should be a portrait of your climate rebel.
You can create your portrait in any style and using any medium, but you are encouraged to follow the Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls illustrators' brief.
Your children can find out more about the challenge by logging in to Global Campus and heading to the 'Writers Corner' section
