Back in spring we held our fourth Athena’s Owls competition, asking 5-14 year-olds in the UK and ROI to get inside the head of a famous mythical monster and give them a voice, re-telling an old tale from a new perspective. We were hoping for some monstrous twists on these famous myths, and we certainly weren’t disappointed! With nearly two hundred fantastic entries our team of judges had an incredibly difficult task trying to pick winners, but after much deliberation we are delighted to announce the winners, runners up, and highly commended stories.
There were three age categories – 5-7 years, 8-11 years, and 12-14 years – and you can read the stories by clicking on the names below. We’re sure that you’ll have as much fun reading them as we did!
Age category 1: 5-7 years
Age category 2: 8-11 years
Age category 3: 12-14 years
Highly commended entrants
