Copyright Knights and Plagiarism Pirates competition

If you enjoy creative writing and are aged 5 and 14 years, why not consider entering the Copyright Knights and Plagiarism Pirates competition run by The National Literacy Trust (NTL)?  The idea behind the competition is to help you understand about 'copyright' and 'plagiarism' and the rules around not copying someone else's work and passing it off as your own.

You can choose to be a copyright knight and write a code of conduct teaching people about copyright and why it's important to protect people's creativity or become a plagiarism pirate and write a song describing what plagiarism is and the consequences for people who plagiarise other people's work.

Prizes include £300 of books for your school, book vouchers worth £50 for the winner and £25 for ten runners up.  Also, the winning pupil will represent their school at a celebratory evening in the House of Commons on National Writing Day (27th June), where they will meet inspiring authors.

The competition closes at 5pm on 31st May.
