Premier League Writing Stars – New Poetry Competition

                                                  Premier League Primary Stars Writing Stars Launch with Yannick Bolasie 

Teachers, educators, parents, opportunity for your schools and young people!

The National Literacy Trust have launched a new competition and initiative as part of their Premier League Reading Stars campaign – called Premier League Writing Stars.
Former professional footballer Frank Lampard OBE, Premier League player and lyricist Yannick Bolasie, Children’s Laureate Lauren Child and the young people’s laureate for London, Caleb Femi, have teamed up with the Premier League to help launch the poetry competition, for children aged 5-11.
The competition asks school children to write around the theme of resilience; what does it mean to you to try and try again? Entries can be any form of poetic writing including a rap or lyrics. Teachers and parents can register or nominate their child’s school to take part at PLPrimaryStars.com.
The first 1,000 schools that enter the competition will receive a fabulous bespoke ‘Book Bag’ – full of books, including What is Poetry (Walker) by Michael Rosen and Jill Calder and Reaching the Stars (Macmillan) by Jan Dean, Michaela Morgan and me, Liz Brownlee.
