Tell Me a Story Association, The Great Lakes Advocate and The Great Lakes Art Society work in collaboration to make this competition possible.   

We are an enthusiastic team of writers, journalists, teachers and artists, who believe in the power and importance of writing.

No matter what career students choose, good writing skills will help them to achieve their dreams.

We organise competitions for school-aged children so they can discover their talents, and find adventure and joy in writing and illustrating. Personal guidance is provided to students in a form of a feedback to their entries, so they can refine their skills. Cash prizes make this competition exciting and appealing to students.

By introducing story illustration to young people, we give artistically inclined students the opportunity to participate in this competition, and to enhance a written story with an appealing graphical presentation.

This competition provides an opportunity for writers and illustrators to explore topics and techniques of their choice, and experience the joy of creation and achievement.

We believe that participation in this competition will enhance students’ communication skills and increase their confidence.

Following the success of our initial competition in February-March 2018, we formed Tell Me a Story Association Inc., as a not-for-profit organisation, ABN 48 573 343 761.

Our team members have a “Working with Children” check.
This program is underscored by “Values for Australian Schooling” and promotes a positive approach to life.

Tell Me a Story competition is designed to be a community event. We encourage local businesses and organisations to support our local school kids by becoming sponsors.
