About the Competition

The ‘Stories on Stage’ Script Writing Competition is open ONLY to schools that have submitted an entry form for the ‘Stories on Stage’ Drama Competition. 

Aims

The aims of the ‘Stories on Stage’ Script Writing Competition are to:

  • provide students with an opportunity to collaborate on writing a drama script based on a short story; and
  • provide teachers with teaching strategies suitable for teaching short stories and script writing as part of the English Language Curriculum at both the junior secondary (KS3) and senior secondary (KS4) level.

 

Description of the Competition

In the ‘Stories on Stage’ Script Writing Competition, students will work in teams of two to four. Students will select a short story from the list of options on the entry form. These stories cover a range of genres and themes. Students may also select a short story from the school-based curriculum on the condition that it meets the criteria for the competition, e.g. it must be fictional, age-appropriate and adaptable for a staged performance. Students will collaborate (online or face-to-face) on writing a drama script adapted from the short story and are encouraged to make use of technology tools like Zoom, Edmodo, Google Drive/Docs and One Drive/Word to facilitate collaboration while classes are suspended.
