Children across our Borough, either living in, or attending school in the Borough, were invited to write a short story on any subject of their choice in less than 750 words. There were two age categories; 10 years and under (years 1 to 6) and 11-14years (years 7 to 9).

A list of finalists in each age group is agreed before the judges decide on the overall winner and the runners-up. Every short story is read by the panel of judges, consisting of the Mayor of Surrey Heath, the Manager of Waterstones bookshop in Camberley, the editor of the Camberley News, an author’s agent, the Marketing Manager from the Camberley Theatre, and a former Head Teacher.
