The Queen Mother's Handwriting Awards
The three judges, who volunteer their time, are past heads of schools, also select the poems for copying. These poems are carefully selected to include an increased level of punctuation, length of line and overall content for each class.
When choosing the winning entries the judges look in detail for correct copying of the poem, the formation of letters and words, correct positioning of punctuation and the overall presentation.
Copies of the winning entries will be displayed at the Autumn Food and Country Fair which is being held on the Peterborough Showground in October. All winners will be sent a family ticket so they can visit the show and see a copy of their winning entry on display as well as enjoying the show.
