Our NZ Student Writing Competition has OFFICIALLY BEGUN!

We loved holding last year’s lockdown writing competition, and collaborating with our incredible judges and prize sponsors to deliver students a fun opportunity amidst our national (and international) lockdowns. It was wonderful to see the enjoyment shared by both students and teachers throughout last year’s competition!

We hope we can achieve that once more with out 2022 NZ student writing competition! It’s now up and running, so we invite class groups or individual students to participate!

Our two biggest goals are:
– show students that writing (and learning writing skills) can be fun
– improve students’ writing skills by increasing confidence, self-direction and agency

Those participating (as a school, class or you even just a few keen individual students) will have the opportunity to craft their entries with the help of our writing skills tool, Stylefit. We loved hearing about our participating schools’ experiences with the software during the 2021 writing competition – here’s a video snippet on student motivation!

If you’d like to participate, get in touch with anna@stylefit.org. We’ll either extend your current Stylefit licence or open up a trial version for the duration of the competition. You can also find out more about how it works by booking a demo or having a look at the feedback features here.
