Randwick City Council, in conjunction with the University of NSW and Juvenilia Press, have extended the deadline for entries for the Lionel Bowen Young Writers’ Award and are calling on the school students of Randwick City to use their imagination and submit an entry before 17 July 2016.

Named in honour of former Mayor of Randwick and former Deputy Prime Minister, Lionel Bowen AC, the Lionel Bowen Young Writers’ Award aims to uncover the creative writing talents of young people in and around Randwick City.

Mayor of Randwick, Noel D’Souza, believes that writing is a powerful tool to generate creativity and is a great outlet for students to create something new and exciting.

“This year’s theme “conserving our environment” reflects one of Randwick City Council’s key priorities, namely the implementation of innovative strategies and projects to protect and enhance our precious natural environment. 

“I’m really excited to see what the students of Randwick City can come up with and to get them thinking about the importance of our natural environment,” said Mayor D’Souza. 

Entrants have the chance to win fantastic prizes including prepaid credit cards, vouchers and books supplied by Juvenilia Press. Award winners will have the added thrill of seeing their work in print, when Juvenilia Press publishes a book containing all the winning entries.
