YOUNG people from Brentwood are being urged to talk about their dreams for the future as part of a national competition.

Children aged between nine and 14 years can take part in the Dream A Big Dream contest being run by Kip McGrath Education, which has a centre in Hutton Road, Shenfield.

The centre provides maths and English tutoring.

In the competition, youths will be encouraged to discuss what dreams they have for the future and then writing about them.

Schalk Meyer, the centre manager in Shenfield, said: “We work with amazing children every day and experience the potential they have to do great things.

“Dream a Big Dream is a great opportunity for local young people to set their mind to what they want to achieve in the future.”

Prizes for the competition included a book featuring all the winning entries along with £100 of Amazon vouchers and an iPad mini.

Entries must be handed in by February 22. For more information, visit /Competition
