Dozens of stories were submitted by some of Luxembourg's sharpest young pens, but our jury has now selected their five favourites in each age category. Who gets your vote? Read or listen to the stories and cast your vote here!
This contest came about as the result of a Facebook post on a page for parents in Luxembourg, wherein one local parent asked if there was anywhere for their kid to get their stories published.
Given that we love stories and writing - as do our contest sponsors Ernster, of course - we couldn't resist putting together a contest. We divided the contest into two age categories (up to 11 years of age, and 12-16), and had fistfuls of stories submitted in each category.
Our jury has been hard at work selecting their favourites, and we have narrowed the selection down to five stories in each category. You can read them all below or, better yet, listen to them as told by talented Today Radio colleagues.
Note: Voting closed at 11.59pm on Sunday 1 October! From Tuesday 3 October you will be able to see the winners here.
