Writing Competition

Take part in our annual writing competition to win a sleepover for your class

The Novium Museum runs an annual writing competition for local school children. Each year we choose a different theme and pupils are invited to submit a piece of writing to be in with a chance of winning a museum sleepover for their class.

To enter, children must produce a piece of writing, no longer than one side of A4. The writing can be in any style - story, poem or play.

The competition is open to all children aged 7 - 11. Please feel free to decorate your entry but judging will be based only on the writing.

Letters and further information will be sent out to schools ahead of each competition but if you would like further information please contact a member of the learning team on
