Holiday Adventure Story Writing Competition

A love of reading, writing and a passion for adventure are the themes of a new competition, with children aged ten and under being asked to put their imagination and creativity into action by writing a story about Lottie and her holiday adventures.

The competition is a chance for one lucky child to win a selection of ten books from the Lottie Pinterest folder ‘Great Books for Girls’ (that boys can read too!), in addition to winning exclusive new Lottie products before they hit the shops. 

Entering the competition is very straightforward;

Parents and guardians are asked to download a printable template from the storywriting app on the Lottie dolls Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/lottiedolls so that kids can use this as a starting point for their story. Parents are then required to take a photo of their child’s story and upload it onto the storywriting contest Facebook app and fill in a form to grant parental permission for their child’s entry to be considered for the competition. Full terms and conditions of the competition are to be found at:

  2. What a great idea. I am always so thrilled to learn of writing competitions for my students! In fact yesterday, being only the fifth day of school, I lost one of my best French students but to a great cause. She was accepted to a boarding school in the state of Michigan to study WRITING! YES! Only 15 years old, and she is on her way. She is thrilled (I could already tell she has a love for language). I wish her well. I wish all the youngsters in this competition FUN as they let their imaginations GO!

    Happy weekend dearest Barbara! Anita

    1. Hello Anita, how lovely for your student and for you being there at the start! Maybe you will see her name in a bookstore one of these days (if you do you must send me the title of the book!) I hope you are having a restful weekend. It is a lovely day in the UK, sunshine and blue sky. Love & hugs

    1. Hi Carolyn, yes I wish I was ten (or under) again, but then I wish that all the time!

  7. How wonderful! I love that they're getting kids involved in storytelling so early. Creativity is really important in an era where kids grow up playing on tablets and smartphones instead of playing outside.

  12. Its a great news and a beautiful Idea to nudge children towards more creative and literary tastes.... nothing is better to fuel their imagination then writing a story... May all participants enjoy every moment of it and be enriched by the experience ... and yes. best wishes :)

    1. Thanks Kokila, how nice it would be to be young enough to enter! 

    2. Lol..it would have been a wonderful and an enriching experience for me... when young the imagination is fertile and lateral thinking at its prime......at my time the running line (translated from Hindi) was " who don't do anything, go on to become poets and writers " Still glad to be here with friends like you :)
