GOLD £30 SILVER £20 BRONZE £10


Any child between 7 and 18 years old living in the CRIER distribution area may enter.

The piece that you write must have some connection with Abernethy and district, either the place or a resident.


It could be your personal feelings about the village, how it could be improved, what you like or what you don’t like.

If you moved in recently how does Abernethy compare with where you lived before?

It could be about the history of the village or a particular building or family.

It could be about the career of someone from these parts or about you; you are a resident!

It could be about the surrounding country or wildlife.

What would Abernethy’s Facebook page look like?

What might it tweet?
