Children who write a report imagining the First World War ended today could win a trip to a television studio.

Poppyscotland has joined forces with STV News to launch its learning competition for 2018 which calls on P4-S3 pupils to report the end of the First World War.

Pupils are encouraged to think creatively around modern-day reporting techniques, which could include recording a video, writing a blog piece or putting together a series of social media posts.

STV is offering an exclusive prize for the winners of each category – a special visit to its studios, where winners can share their report with news anchors and learn professional tips on how to make and present the news.

Entries to the ‘BREAKING NEWS: WAR IS OVER!’ competition will be judged across two categories: primary (P4-P7) and secondary (S1-S3).

For more information on the competition, which closes on Friday December 7,  visit learning/competition, or telephone Theresa Merricks on 0141 338 6580.
