“First Aid for Fairies” author Lari Don got this year’s Green Pencil Award underway with the help of pupils from Leith Primary School.
The Green Pencil Award is a writing competition for schoolchildren with an environmental theme. This year’s topic is “Scotland’s wonderful weather”. To help support the Green Pencil Award, a series of Live Literature events involving schools are being held in libraries across the Capital during September, with support from the Scottish Book Trust.
Last year we received over 1000 entries and the judges are looking forward to reading this year’s submissions. You can find out more on the Green Pencil Award page.
