School Kids in Partnership (SKIP), a co-operative group of 17 schools from Helston and the Lizard, is organising a commemorative World War I poetry competition.

The contest is open to children from the group's schools in two age ranges: year three and below and years four to six.

One standout entry from each category will be read at a civic service in Helston on 20th July, and will win a £10 gift card, with all entries to be displayed in Helston Museum.

The deadline is June 20, and entries should be sent to, indicating which school the entrant attends.
