Here is the winning Under 9s poem from our summer 2010 writing competition. You were asked to write a poem incorporating the word ‘snap.’

A reminder: always check the rules of the competition. If you don’t stick to the rules, we have to disqualify your entry and that makes us sad!

Under 9s winner: T Arthur (NSW)

Hearing Snap

Snap is the sound that you hear when the elastic in

Congratulations! The winners of our writing competitions receive a $20 book voucher.
