Collins Big Cat Writing Competition 2023
Congratulations to all our winners!
This year's theme was 'Celebrating Science!'
We had hundreds of responses from young writers all over the world, and all of them were incredibly thoughtful, inventive and fun; our authors had the best time judging such high calibre pieces of writing. We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who got involved and to keep an eye out for more information on next year's writing competition!Read all the regional winners here
