Bilingual childrens book competition

The School Office of the Greek Orthodox Community of South Australia (GOCSA) is organising a Children’s Bilingual Story Book Competition.
Following last year’s successful outcome with the publishing of Kalyani Huilgol’s “Whatapotamus”, the Competition is open to all students attending afternoon and Saturday Greek Language Schools.
All interested students are invited to write an original story in both Greek and English, approximately 250 words, and to submit their entry in electronic format (on CD) as well as hard copy, to the Schools Office by Friday 3rd July 2009.
A panel of judges will select the winning story that will be professionally published and placed in the Greek Schools Resource Centre.
The winning book will be launched at a special ceremony during the Adelaide Hellenic Cultural Festival Odyssey 2009.
Students have the option of illustrating their stories although this will not be criteria on which they will be judged.
The selection criteria include:
Simple, concise and complete sentences;
Correct use of language (syntax and grammar);
Originality;
Interesting story line and/or content and
Contemporary moral message or conclusion.
Interested participants can send their stories to the Greek Language Schools at GOCSA.
