About YAWA

What is YAWA?

YAWA in an annual writing award sponsored by Pearson along with our partners, Penguin Books and Dorling Kindersley.

Each year thousands of kids across Australia enter their stories and poems into YAWA. The winners are selected by a different judge each year. All of our judges are experienced and well regarded children’s authors, who love the job of reading work from Australia’s budding authors and giving their feedback. Best of all, winners receive a special printed certificate and cash/book prize.

YAWA entries are open between March and June 2011, so get pen to paper or finger to keyboard and start crafting your story…
