Budding journalist is finalist in STABILO Young Journalist of the Year

 Beatrice Granger aged 9 is finalist in STABILO Young Journalist of the Year Competition Beatrice Granger aged 9 is finalist in STABILO Young Journalist of the Year CompetitionPreshute Primary School pupil, Beatrice Granger, aged 9, has been chosen as one of ten finalists in the national STABILO Young Journalist of the Year competition! 

Beatrice’s article on the subject of the beauty within us was chosen by a panel of judges from hundreds of entries.  The overall winner will be announced in October. 

Beatrice commented: “I was very excited when I was told I was one of the  competition finalists.  I tried to choose a topic I really had an opinion about – the fact that young people don’t always realise that it’s not what you look like, but the person you are inside that is so important.”

“I liked entering this competition because I really like writing.  At the moment I am writing a ‘Foodie’s Summer Newsletter’.  Thank you STABILO and First News for choosing me as a finalist.” 

Beatrice’s mum, Trudi, added, Writing competitions like this are fantastic for children as they give them the opportunity to write for a specific audience.  We are delighted that Beatrice was so motivated to enter this competition when she read about it in First News.  We hope this is just the start of a lifelong interest in writing for Beatrice. We are very proud of her.” 

Now in its seventh year, the annual writing competition, which is run by STABILO in association with First News, aims to find the best young writing talent in Britain. 

The winner will have the opportunity to write their very own column for the children’s newspaper, First News, and will win £1,000 of STABILO products for their classmates. 

Vanya Hunter, Marketing Manager at STABILO said:  “The talent of our young journalists surprises us every year! It is such a joy to read the children’s work, and is extremely difficult to whittle it down to just ten finalists.”

“The standard was the highest it has ever been.  There were some truly inspiring articles and stories, with the environment being the most popular subject.  We hope that everyone continues to write even if they didn’t make it as a finalist.” 

Marlborough.news would be pleased to hear from Beatrice.  We are always on the lookout for new writers.
