Information for Teachers
The Scottish Government and Learning and Teaching Scotland hope to attract as many competition entries as possible and we need your help.
If you think you know of a pupil with a particular interest in any aspect of this competition, whether it be writing, health or even science fiction, then please make them aware of where they can find more details about the competition.
