The 2016 Gozo Live/Gozo College writing participation ended in October and a total of 88 entries were received from 12 different schools in Gozo.
The organisers said that this is the best response so far in the 4 years that this participation has been running. More schools than ever have entered.
The judges said that they were delighted with the quality of the entries and the range and originality of the subjects that students decided to write about. The ages of entrants ranged from 8 years to 17.
A year-end function will be held on Friday, the 9th of December at 4.00 pm in the Gozo College Senior Secondary School in Europa Street to honour the students who entered.
During the event certain students will be asked to read part of their entries. All students who entered, their parents, teachers and family members are invited to attend this event.
"A third edition of the book, 'Young Writers of Gozo' has been produced and as many entries as possible are in the book. Sadly funds prevent us from including all the entries but every student who entered has their name recorded in the book," Gozo Live said.
At the event all students will receive a copy of the book, a certificate and their entry with the judge's comments.
