Roald Dahl's #Imaginormous Challenge Writing Contest

Roald Dahl's #imaginormous Challenge is here!  Do you have a child between the ages of 5 and 12 with a wacky imagination and a love for writing?  This contest may be for them!
 
 Roald Dahl's stories all started out as just a few lines written in various idea books. Out of these books came the tales we all love, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, and  Fantastic Mr. Fox.
