My beautiful, true, story of six year-old, Nancy Bentley The First Australian Female Sailor was chosen as the winning entry. It was a marvellous moment, and the prize of a gift voucher from Paperchain Bookstore, Manuka, was a pleasant surprise.
Best of all- I received hundreds of fabulous gold stickers to place on my books. I have never valued stickers so much in my life.
