Young Travel Writer Competition

Want to be a travel writer?

Calling all young travel writers! Do you think you can write a winning short story about a holiday you’ve had? If you’ve been on an amazing holiday and are just bursting to tell the world about it, then this is the competition for you!

If your holiday story is the best of all, you will win a holiday for the WHOLE of your family to a fun-packed Al Fresco holiday park of your choice.

So, there are plenty of brownie points with mum if you win!

How to enter

To enter, all you need to do is write up to 300 words all about your holiday, where you went, what you did, why it was great, and upload your story below and you could win the holiday. If you want to, include pictures if possible so we can see what made it such a good holiday.

The top ten stories will then be judged for the chance to win a holiday to an Al Fresco holiday parc in Europe.

There are two age ranges – 10 & under and 11 & over – so please include your age, name and email address.

Finally, make sure to get mum and dad’s permission first!

If you’re stuck for ideas, here’s a few to get you started. Don’t worry, you don’t need to answer everything on the list, it’s just to give you 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?
  • Did you sample any new food? Did you like it? Anything you didn’t like?
