Orla, Year 7, wins prize for national poetry competition
The Orangutan Foundation teamed up again this year with National Geographic Kids Magazine to launch a children’s writing competition to great success! They received more than 300 entries, and were enormously proud and impressed with the creativity and insight expressed in each of them.
Each child wrote a story or poem to the theme of ‘The Orangutan’s World’, and every entry did a fantastic job at highlighting the problems that orangutans and their rainforests face. Selecting the winners was an incredibly difficult undertaking as the standard was so high, but our guest judge Joanna Lumley was finally able to select her favourites!
Orla was awarded 3rd prize in her age category for her wonderful poem, well done Orla.
