1. Can I join both in the Individual Category as an individual and with my school / learning centre?

Yes, but you must create a new account with a new email address, and submit a different story to each category. The same story cannot be submitted to both Individual and School Category.


All learning centres who are Program Partners of My Story Creation competition will enter their story submissions in the Individual Category.

2. How can I submit my story?

After you have created an account with your login and password, you can continue to use your login and password to access the account to start creating and uploading our story on http://mystory.kids4kids.org.hk/. Finally, when you are ready to submit your story, you will be asked to make a payment of HK$300 for the My Story Creation competition application fee.

For Individual Category, each submission will require a HK$300 fee and this is how kids can help other kids. For every one story submission fee received, a child from a low-resourced primary school will receive a free story submission code to join the My Story Creation Competition.

One story created by you can give an opportunity to help another kid create their own story!

3. How do I know if my school or learning centre has joined the Kids4Kids My Story Creation Competition?

If your school has registered as a participating school in My Story Creation competition, we will email you at the end of September the Teacher Coordinator to contact at your school because every registered participating school will receive 10 free submission codes to enter their students’ top ten finalist stories into the My Story Creation competition 2018.
