Toothless youngster wins writing prize
A seven-year-old school pupil has won a UK literature prize for his story about a missing tooth.
Adam Bhatti, who is a student at Whiteheath Junior School in Ruislip, Middlesex, won the title Explore Learning National Young Writer of the Year for his story ‘The Missing Tooth Fairy’.
Bhatti’s story was chosen above 10,000 other entries in the ‘Under-14s’ category for his tale about being the last person in his class to lose a tooth.
A now gappy Bhatti received his award at
a special assembly on Wednesday 17 March 2010 and he will also receive prizes of a trip to DisneyLand Paris for his family and £500s-worth of books for his school.
The annual competition is organised to encourage young authors to inspire other children to write.Join this Discussion
