Some writing competitions for children - deadlines soon

There are a few writing competitions for children and teenagers running currently. So, if you have willing and talented relatives, friends, or maybe pupils, you might be interested in these under 18 competitions. They are three poetry and one short story award with different age categories listed. Prizes seem to mostly involve kindles, book tokens, or money - and the glory of winning!
