Kaukapakapa Library short story competition

Thrown off course by Covid - 19, Kaukapakapa Library scrambled to find an April event which didn’t involve its usual practice of being open to the public on market day. The Kaukapakapa Library Short Story Competition was born, with four categories - Junior, Intermediate, Senior and Te Reo Mâori – for writers to enter.

There was a lot of interest in the competition, with the number and quality of entries giving our judges a real challenge. Helen Martin and Rewana Waaka were absolute stars, stepping in at short notice to be judges.

Winners will receive $50 gift vouchers from Helensville Paper Plus Select and all participants will receive a jar of Kaipara Natural Honey and a copy of the 2020 South Kaipara calendar.

Category winners:

Junior                                Paige McGregor

Intermediate                   Latesha SouthernVasey

Senior                               Alan Calvert,

Te Reo Mâori                  Waratah Taogaga,

Oskar Williams (joint winners)

Thanks very much to everyone who took part.

Please keep an eye on the Kaukapakapa Library Facebook page for details on when the library will be open again.
