Mayor's short story challenge logo

Mayors' Short Story Competition 2017

The Mayors’ Short Story Challenge is a wonderful collaboration between the City of Victor Harbor, Alexandrina Councils and the District Council of Yankalilla, celebrating ‘creative’ writing.   The “Challenge” is held during term two each year for school aged children, from reception to year 10.  Each year the Mayors’ Short Story gets bigger & better with both councils receiving a record number of entries.

Entires open soon for all schools in the Council Areas. Schools, please see your local Public Library for details on how to enter as a class.

We look forward to reading the fantastic, creative range of stories!
