Budding writers at Diss High School were presented with certificates after entering the Rotary Young Writer Competition.

Eighteen students competed against each other to get through the Rotary District Round by writing a story entitled Reflection.

They each received a certificate from the club signed by the president, and the winners were also presented with a gift token.

Judges said it was a difficult task to decide who would go through to district level as the work was of a very high standard. One student was awarded a Highly Commended certificate from Rotary District 1080.

President Heather Baab said: 'It is good to know the written word continues in this age of technology. The students should be proud of their work and school.'

She said she hoped the club would continue its link with the school in the future. The competition was open to schools in Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.
