Introducing the Thinkably World Story Writing Competition Winner – Ho Ka Yin
On: April 25, 2022
Back in July 2021, Thinkably announced its first World Story Writing Competition – open to entries across the globe for 7-11 year olds.
The competition encouraged children to write a short story, under 1,000 words, based on the superhero book titled The Remarkables, describing a day in the life of a new character to join the vibrant and unique characters. With a theme of ‘Hidden Superpowers’, it was designed to be fun and accessible for children to allow their imagination to wander and their ideas to flow – acknowledging their own individual attributes and unique abilities, while appreciating the different ‘powers’ in others too.
It was announced that the winner would receive:
An illustrated digital book of their story published on the Thinkably platform
50 printed hard copies of their story turned into a physical book
A lifetime membership to Thinkably for their school
A lifetime membership to Thinkably for their family
A feature on the Thinkably website as a contributing author and promotion across our Thinkably social media networks
After entries closed on October 29th 2021, we finally have a winner!
