This year there were more than 440 entries from around the region in the Mayors' Short Story Competition.
This event is held every year and gives budding writers the opportunity to write a story and have it judged against other students in similar age categories.
At Victor Harbor R-7, more than 100 students entered the competition.
Four lucky students were shortlisted and invited to a ceremony with the City of Victor Harbor Mayor Moira Jenkins at the school.
Ayla (Year 5) and Amos (Year 6) received certificates for being shortlisted and Ruby (Reception) and Alex (Year 4) were awarded certificates as winners of their section.
We are very proud of all students who entered and look forward to seeing their writing develop further in the next few years. We may even have a future published author in our midst??
