Young Territory Authors Awards
On Thursday 24 October the winners of the 29th Young Territory Author Awards 2019 were announced at the Darwin Entertainment Centre. The event saw two Darwin High School students recognised for their entries as talented young writers.
The Young Territory Author Awards is an annual writing competition where entrants write and produce their own book. The Awards aim to inspire children and young people in the NT to explore their ideas and turn them into stories. The competition is open to all Territorians 18 years and under, and is organised in association with other public libraries and schools throughout the Northern Territory.
With over 300 aspiring young authors submitting entries this year, Year 11 student Tiger-Lily Clements was awarded the winner and Year12 student Jennifer Woo highly commended of the 16 – 18 year old category.
Congratulations Tiger-Lily and Jennifer, what a fantastic achievement.
