Contest Finalists 2020

Great Beginnings 2019-2020

The Great Beginnings contest closed with a remarkable thirty + entries – and I mean remarkable in every sense of the word. The quality of the writing was of a very high standard, and I know from the comments of our judges that they all enjoyed their tasks tremendously. You needed an average score of 95/100 and above to final.

Because of the sheer amount of entries, and with each entry needing to be read by five different judges for fairness, the need was great this year for willing judges. And the Great turned up.  Thank you all for putting your hands up to help out your organisation. The words are said often, but in this instance, they couldn’t be truer – without your help, this contest would not have got off the ground. Thank you once more for your help in making this contest run smoothly.

And thank you for representing our organisation with your incredible talent.
