Tracey Hawkins to launch Ulladulla’s Story Book Challenge

Tracey Hawkins the children’s author will launch Ulladulla Carpet Court’s new literacy competition, the Storybook Challenge, with a special reading event at Ulladulla Public School on Tuesday 26 June.

The Carpet Court Storybook Challenge will give primary schools in the Ulladulla area the chance to win $1,000 in books by encouraging students in grades one to four to submit an illustrated story sharing what they love most about their community.

With Australian students’ reading literacy levels on the decline, Ulladulla Carpet Court is committed to promoting a more literate future for children through the Carpet Court Storybook Challenge.

Doug Gooch of Ulladulla Carpet Court said the aim was to encourage children to be excited about reading and develop wider learning and literacy skills.

Until Friday 3 August the Carpet Court Storybook Challenge will be open to children in grades one to four in the store region. Students wishing to enter can pick up an entry form for the Storybook Challenge from Ulladulla Carpet Court, or from their local primary school, or email storybook@carpetcourt.com.au.

Finalists will be judged by a panel at Carpet Court, including a successful children’s author, with winners for each participating store announced from Friday 16 July 2012.
