Stories matter. They matter a lot. They can make us think, reflect, laugh and cry.
At Acorn House International this year we are proud to announce the first story writing contest to inspire and motivate our young writers. Fairy Tale can educate us, persuade and entertain us. They contain a moral and teach lessons about excellence in conduct or character.
