Do you know a child that could write a truly amazing story?

If you do, they could bag 480 books for their school*, along with a RocketBook and a £50 Amazon voucher for themselves.

Welsh Libraries have teamed up with their friends, Alzheimer’s Society Cymru, to help raise awareness about dementia and they need incredible stories.

Think about some of your favourite memories…a trip to the seaside with your grandad, baking with gran or maybe even fighting dragons at a castle! Now, could wonderful memories be turned into a spectacular story?

Every day, 480 people across the UK develop dementia, and memory loss plays a part in someone’s journey with dementia.

Stories will be judged by authors and people living with dementia across Wales, and they will award the first prize and prizes for two lucky runners-up.

Closing date for entries is August 15, 2019 and stories can be sent in from children and young people under 16.

Stories are to be handed in to your local library – no longer than 480 words. Entries need to have the writers name, age and school (class name too) at the end of the story. We welcome stories written in any language. We would also love to see illustrations to go with the story!! Stories can also be emailed as a Word document to dementiafriendly@cardiff.gov.uk

We look forward to reading all about lots of wonderful memories.

*Welsh Libraries will work closely with the winning school to carefully select the 480 books. For more details, please contact dementiafriendly@cardiff.gov.uk
