Meet the winners of our Children’s Writing Competition!
The Orangutan Foundation teamed up again this year with National Geographic Kids Magazine to launch a children’s writing competition to great success! We received more than 300 entries, and were enormously proud and impressed with the creativity and insight expressed in each of them.
Each child wrote a story or poem to the theme of ‘The Orangutan’s World’, and every entry did a fantastic job at highlighting the problems that orangutans and their rainforests face. Selecting the winners was an incredibly difficult undertaking as the standard was so high, but our guest judge Joanna Lumley was finally able to select her favourites!
We are delighted to announce that Morgan Davidson, Angeline Islam, and Toby Mawer have won the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes (respectively) for the 6-9 Year Old category, and Eloise Blakey, Jacob Bicker, and Orla Dalby have won the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place (respectively) for the 10-13 Year Old category! Congratulations to all!
The prize winners have not only won a number of incredible prizes, but both 1st place winners will have their writing published on the National Geographic Kids website, the LoveReading4Kids website, and the Orangutan Foundation blog!
We are very excited to be able to reward our young supporters in this way, and we do hope that all who entered the competition will continue to learn about and support endangered orangutans in the future.
