English Short Story Competition

Short Story Competition of 2020

Win a month’s worth of tuition with only 50 words!

Are you creative? Do you have a story to tell? Enter our English short story competition and win our prize of one month’s free tuition! There is no prompt, no mandatory genre you have to wite in; the only restriction is, it has to be exactly 50 words long – no more, no less. Let your imagination run wild and send us your story – in prose or as a poem! The competition is open to everyone, not only Afterschoolers.

We have two categories: ages 8-12 and ages 12-15

Deadline for entries is 19 June
Winners will be announced on 3 July

Our judges for the 50-Word Story Contest are the Afterschool Teaching Team. We will choose the winners on the basis of the effectiveness of the story and the quality of the writing.

About Budapest Afterschool

We are an English school in the heart of Buda. We provide an English-speaking environment for kindergarten, primary and secondary school children, with a variety of classes and programmes with native speaking English teachers.

All our teachers are English native speakers and qualified. We believe that good teaching is based on good relationships with the children. Classes are hands-on and enjoyable. Our aim is to give children, who may be attending more traditional content and test-centred schools, access to a different style of learning. We encourage them to be pro-active and develop their cognitive and creative skills alongside their English.

Classes are 90 minutes long on the  weekday afternoons,  in small groups, in our location in Buda.
