“The competition is themed “Why reading matters” and is for Pacific people aged 16 years and under. Entries should capture real life experiences, whereby children and young people can send in personal experiences about how reading has helped them. There’s nothing more powerful than having kids talk to other kids. All they need to do is share a story (preferably their own real life experience) about how reading helped them.”
