Of all the places in the world, I never thought I would be here...

Finish the story to enter this year's Summer Stars short story competition!

This year, as well as enjoying all the amazing worlds you visit when reading books, Summer Stars is celebrating your imagination by running a short story competition.

The competition is open to 6-18 year olds living in the Republic of Ireland - of course 6 year olds won't be competing against teenagers! There are three age categories: age 6-9, age 10-14, age 15-18.

To enter, write a story using the following opening line: Of all the places in the world, I never thought I would be here.

There will be 15 finalists in each category and one national winner from each category. Each category winner will receive a Tablet. Each finalist in all categories will receive a €50 voucher.

That's a lot of great prizes and a lot of chances to win so let your imagination fly and start writing today!
