Do You Know A Young Travel Writer? - Al Fresco Holidays

Do you know a young Bill Bryson or Michael Palin?

Well, we are on the hunt for all budding young travel writers! Do you know a child who loves to write all about their travels? Well we want to hear from them for a chance to win a family holiday.

We have today launched a Young Travel Writer of the Year competition right here on our brand new interactive kidz blog. We are encouraging children to write all about their travels in a bid to win a family holiday.

There are two age ranges – 10 & under and 11 & over and the competition will run for one month. All entrants have to do is write a story no longer than 300 words about a recent holiday – the best each day will be uploaded for all to read. The top ten will then be judged for the chance to win a holiday to an Al Fresco holiday parc in Europe.

If they’re stuck for ideas, here are a few ideas to get kids started. Don’t worry, they don’t need to answer everything on the list, it’s just to give them some pointers:

  • Where did you go?
  • How did you get there?
  • Who did you go with?
  • Did you go to the beach, play in the pool or explore the countryside?
  • Did you try a new sport?
  • Did you make lots of new friends?
  • Did anything funny happen while you were away?
  • What was the best bit?
