Boroondara Literary Award Winners 2014

The annual Boroondara Literary Awards were presented at the Hawthorn Town Hall in Melbourne, November 2014. Hundreds of students entered stories and poetry into the competition and only a select few are awarded prizes.

Ruyton Girls School celebrated several students who competed and placed in the awards. Year 10 student Sally Chao received second prize for her story Statue of Ribberty in the Young Writers’ Senior Prose category. Highly Commended awards were received in the same category for Rachel Baillie from Year 10 with her story Redheads Anonymous Activist Fighters and Marina Altson in Year 11 for her story Ghosts of the Past. These stories feature in the 2014 edition of Scripsi, which can be viewed on the Ruyton Girls’ School website at

The Boroondara Literary Awards were founded in 1999 in partnership between the Rotary Club of Balwyn and the City of Boroondara. The awards offer the chance to receive cash prizes in two sections. A prize pool of over $7,500 is available across various age groups in the Young Writers section, with almost $4,500 available in the Open Short Story section. Winning entries are published in the annual anthology Word You UP.

Entries will re-open on Monday 4 May for the 2015 competition.
