Heroes and heroines
The Theme Park wants this hero or heroine to be a role model - someone who will inspire visitors to the park, of either sex, and of different ages. The best contribution will be presented at the unveiling of the statue this spring. You can read more about the guidelines for the event below.
If you wish to participate, you must follow the guidelines below:
Your contribution should be no longer than 250 words.
An original idea
The hero or heroine should not be a person you can find in a book or a film. So using Robin Hood would not be allowed. It should be someone created from your imagination, or a real character who is not yet well known.
Your story should be set in the present day. If you feel like writing about a character from the past or future you should make him or her travel back or forwards in time, to arrive in the present day.
The hero or heroine
You may wish to introduce some other characters, that the hero or heroine interacts with. They could be anyone, male or female. It is all up to your own imagination.
The story should take place in a European country.
Your entry should include one picture, or several, of your hero or heroine.
You will need to include some links to Web sites or pages about the area you have chosen as the setting for your story, so the park managers can see this and learn about it.
All entries should include your name, date of birth (day/month/year), school name and address and a contact e-mail address (this can be your own, or your teacher's address).
Format for entries
All entries will be published on the Babelnet Themepark Web site. The winners of the contest will receive the Babelnet certificate and a box of chocolates.
