The Guardian has launched a Young Sportswriter of the Year competition for seven to 12-year-olds in the UK. The aim is to make children excited at the prospect of reading and writing about their favourite sport. Entries should consist of a piece of writing, which can be either a match report of a sporting event that has taken place or a profile piece about an athlete of their choice. The maximum is 600 words but the article can be shorter.
To be in with a chance of winning, submit an entry before the 19th May.
