Young Journalist of the Year Competition

If you’re a lover of writing, with a nose for a good story and a passion for spreading the word, then this is the writing competition for you.
STABILO and First News are looking for young writers to share thoughts and opinions on the stories that matter to you. It might be something that affects you or your family and friends, perhaps something important is happening in your town or at school. It might be something you want to celebrate and shout about, or even something that makes you cross and that you want to raise awareness of.
