The Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards NSW writing competition for NSW students in Years 1 to 6





WriteOn competition

WriteOn is an annual writing competition open to all primary students in Years 1 to 6. Using a photograph as a stimulus, students are asked to compose an imaginative piece of writing up to 500 words in length.

WriteOn provides primary students with the opportunity to become published authors. Outstanding entries from last year's WriteOn competition have been published in the Best of WriteOn 2015 anthology.

This year the competition is being held in association with the State Library of NSW. The presentation of certificates will be held at the State Library of NSW on 21 September 2016.
