We’ve launched a story and art competition with a flu fighting theme, great prizes for the top stories are up for grabs!

This competition is open to anyone aged 5 to 11 years old living in Bradford District and Craven.

Stories and art can include anyone, whether that be a favourite cartoon characters, celebrity, superhero, dinosaur, alien or princess.

Children are encouraged to be as creative as they want, so long as the story is about fighting the flu they can create anything their imagination drums up.

This template can be used for drawings or paintings. Children who choose to submit a drawing or painting are asked to include a short summary explaining the thoughts behind the flu fighter they drew.

The children’s story competition is now open and will close on 16 October 2023 (extended from 1 October, giving your little ones more time get drawing, painting or writing). Submit entries online or post for free to ‘Flu Fighter Team, Freepost Bradford District and Craven Health and Care Partnership, Scorex House (West), BD1 4AS’ – make sure to include the authors name, age and a parents or guardians email address or telephone number.

The judging will take place once the competition has closed, and the winners will be announced on 16 October. The top stories will be used to help other children and families learn about fighting flu.
