The Serial Mash Competition Winners are now in!

July 14, 2015


We had hundreds of stories sent in from all over the world and the winners span three continents. Each entry was well crafted, unique, and a pleasure to read. 

It was a tough decision but we are excited to announce the winners. 


The winning Thieves in the Night chapter came from St Mary's DSG Kloof (ZA) and the winning Beast from Below chapter came from Our Lady of Grace RC Primary School (UK).


We have also awarded prizes for the runner up best story (Sparkenhoe Community Primary School, UK) and for best illustrations (Hatfield Christian School, ZA).
