Throughout the year we hold fantastic competitions for young people - details of all the different annual competitions can be found on our website. There's a competition to suit every strength, whether it be story writing, creating a piece of art, taking a stunning photo or writing a captivating poem.

More children than ever before entered our recent WildVerse poetry competition, seeing an impressive 30% increase on last year's entries.

As a result, the judges were overwhelmed by the fantastic response and quality of the poems that had been entered by young people accross the country - they had their work cut out deciding who should win accross both categories (under and over 8's).

So a huge congratulations are in order to Thomas, aged 7, from London for winning the under 8 category with Not an Otter Spotter!, and Ian, aged 13, from Linlithgow for winning the over 8's category with The Kingfisher.

You can listen to the winning poems, and the fantastic entries from the runners up, when they are read out on air on the Fun Kids radio station between 27th - 31st December.

Our competitions are open to all young people and would be ideal for participation at school or at home.
