Very many thanks to the DragonLNGDarwin Experience, Penny Reed, Marten Lewis, Lynette Round and the review panel!

Pembrokeshire has a fantastic and inspirational natural environment for children to discover. So for this year's Bilingual Children's Writing Competition, we are working in close conjunction with the DragonLNG Darwin Experience.

The topic for this year's competition is Pictures of Pembrokeshire. The DragonLNG Darwin Experience covers 4 main themes in its work, and stories may be written about any one of these themes.

We invited each of the four schools closest to Llangwm to submit a suggested story title for one of these themes:

Coasts - Don't Look Down
Suggested by Ben Cullen of Johnston Community Primary School

Minibeasts - The Mystical Magical Minibeast of Neyland Marina
Suggested by Haylea Germishuizen of Neyland Community School

Rivers - The Mystery of the Gurgling River
Suggested by Cherry Baum of Cleddau Reach VC Primary School

Rockpools - Seaside Circles
Suggested by Emily Holton of Hook Community Primary School

We would like to invite any child of primary school age to join in the fun and take part in this competition.

There will be four categories of entries:

Foundation Phase pupils Welsh
Foundation Phase pupils English
Key Stage 2 pupils Welsh
Key Stage 2 pupils English

There will be an awards ceremony during the Festival and the winners of each category will have a chance to read their story to the audience. All the prize-winners and their families will be invited to the awards ceremony.

There will be prizes for the first three places in each category (12 prizes) and a special prize for the story with the best environmental content in each category (4 prizes).

The prizes will be tickets for:

1st prize Blue Lagoon Water Park
2nd Manor House Wildlife Park
3rd Oakwood Theme Park

There will also be a special prize for the best environmental content in each of the four categories:

Foundation phase - a natural history book
Key Stage 2 - a bee keeping experience
