This year’s Creative Classrooms competition is well underway, with some super entries coming into the office from schools across WA.

For the second year in a row, Fremantle Press is offering schools the chance to win $500 worth of books in our Creative Classrooms competition. This year’s big prize includes every book on the 2019 children’s list, plus a selection of books suited to your school’s needs.

Some of the books included this year are Julia Lawrinson’s upcoming release, Maddie in the Middle, Kelly Canby’s latest picture book, Rodney, debut books by fantasy author HM Waugh (The Lost Stone of SkyCity) and Indigenous author Helen Milroy (Wombat, Mudlark and Other Stories), plus the new young adult novel, Invisible Boys, by award-winning writer Holden Sheppard.

Entries so far include this incredible desert island complete with treasure chest and ships based on Norman Jorgensen’s new book, The Wreckers’ Revenge, from Midvale Primary.

So, how do you win?

Send us a photo of a creative project you’ve done in your classroom that was inspired by a Fremantle Press book. We’ll feature it in the Classroom Express and announce a winner at the end of 2019. It doesn’t have to be a book from this year, or a big group of students – anything imaginative will do. And there’s no age limit: from pre-primary to YA, we’d love to see what you get up to with our books.

Here are our top tips for creative projects to get you started:

If a Fremantle Press author visits your school, this is another great opportunity to enter. Take some photos of the activities you do in the classroom, then email them to us or the author.

How do you enter?

Send your photos to admin@fremantlepress.com.au with the subject line ‘2019 Fremantle Press Creative Classrooms Competition’. Make sure you include your school’s details, who took the photos and who or what features in the photos.

When will the winner be announced?

The winner will be contacted by email at the end of 2019 and officially announced in the Term 1 Classroom Express newsletter in 2020.

We’re looking forward to seeing your entries!
