Knife crime creative writing winner

We were delighted to be able to visit the Stanway School, Colchester last week to award our creative writing competition winner her prize. Rebecca, a YR 8 pupil, entered our competition back in October to write a piece of creative writing on the subject of knife harm. The competition was held in partnership with Essex Libraries and was open to pupils attending schools within the Colchester district. The competition coincided with the Knife Angel’s visit to the city.

Her essay ‘Knife Crime Story’ told of a young girl in prison due to committing an offence. The judges were very impressed with Rebecca’s style and creativity and she was a clear winner.

Rebecca won a cash prize for herself and also for her school to invest in resources for their pupils.

Jane Gardner, Deputy PFCC for Essex presented Rebecca with a certificate.
