Abstract

For almost forty years, the Western Australia Branch of The Children’s Book Council of Australia has organised a free competition for children to make their own books. Run entirely by volunteers, with the assistance of sponsorship from local booksellers and government departments, the annual Make Your Own Story Book Competition has been a source of inspiration and encouragement for thousands of children down the years. Teachers and parents of children from inner and outer metropolitan and regional areas and from government, independent, correspondence, and home-school situations have encouraged and supported these young creators in their endeavours. Always aligned to the national Children’s Book Week™, the Awards Presentation Ceremony is a highlight long remembered, especially the handshake from a well-known author or illustrator.
