Climate Change Fiction Writing Contest for Kids

Sponsored by Kids Against Climate Change

Just in time for Earth Day 2021! Annual writing contest for kids!

This is an opportunity for you to be transported to another place or time while showing appreciation for Earth’s natural systems. Combine your knowledge of science and writing techniques, and use your own experiences of how people are behaving during this Covid pandemic that has so altered people’s lives.

Write a realistic fiction story, or a science fiction story, about dealing with a world that is experiencing the severe effects of a changing climate. (A planning page is included in the linked document below to help you get started.) Make the story exciting! Have fun with it! I do hope you survive the climate change disaster, but you’re the author. Only you know what will happen… until you put the words on paper.

Eligible: Kids, age 10-18 years
