Dear students,

We received this notice from Dog’s Trust and some of you may be interested in entering the short story competition.


I hope this finds you well. I know the past few weeks have been challenging for your school and your students. The Dogs Trust Education team really miss delivering our workshops and we look forward to when things go back to normal.

The reason we are emailing you, is because we are hosting a short story competition, and we thought perhaps your students might be interested in talking part.

The details of the competition can be found on our website

We are taking entries up until May 1st, and all entries can be sent to

We hope some of your students might take part as we’re sure there is a huge interest in dogs in your school

You also might be interested to know that we have multiple free downloadable resources on our website that are all curriculum linked, and cater to all levels of primary school

Kind regards,

Paul Cleary

Education and Community Officer (Midlands)
