2022 Theme

The theme for this year is Freedom. Students will be expected to include this theme in their stories. 

Target Age Group : 15 to 19 years of age

Submissions

We will be accepting only 1 entry per school to keep the competition manageable. As you may have multiple candidates, we suggest schools to run a schoolwide Short Story Competition within the next few weeks with the overall school winner entered for the ESU Short Story Competition. This will ensure a fair selection of entrants from each school.
