The Striker Boy National Writing Competition

It’s the night before the big move back to England, you don’t know anyone there, you’ve been on the road with your dad for as long as you can remember – how do you feel?

To enter the Striker Boy writing competition, children need to imagine they are Nat Dixon, the main character in Striker Boy, and write a 200 word diary entry.

It can be based around any event in the book or it could be a made up event that happens in the past or future.

There are already some fantastic prizes on offer, and there are some extra special secret prizes that will be announced at the end of the competition. We can’t say any more than that, we’re sworn to secrecy!

Our PDF Competition Pack gives you all the key information, plus a diary writing planner and worksheet.

The competition is open to all children aged 12 and under.

Schools can benefit from discounts on multiple copies of Striker Boy and download our full range of free classroom resources here.

Parents can pick up a copy of Striker Boy here.
