Thank you to everyone who entered this week's competition! It is great to you all sharing news you've come across that we might not have seen on the Hub so far.
Stars have been awarded to the best entries that gave an original, attention-catching headline and referred to a particular story they had seen.
Our first winner this week is perceptive_butterfly of Rafah Prep Girls School, who gave a heart-warming headline about a story they had seen about communities in the time of coronavirus.
Our second winner is methodical_ocean of Upton Cross Primary School, who gave a catchy, rhyming headline to a story they had seen about entertainment.
Well done to both of you!
Headlines are the big words at the top of a newspaper article. They are the first thing people see and play a big role in whether someone carries on reading!
For this week's competition, create a headline for a news story you have seen in the past week, and briefly sum up the story below.
PLEASE ONLY WRITE ABOUT STORIES SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN.
e.g. My headline is SCIENTISTS FIND SPARKLY SPECIES UNDER THE SEA
This headline is for a story I saw about a shiny new kind of worm being found at at the bottom of the ocean. I read about it here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/52680984
The story could be something that made the news globally, or just in your country, or just in your community.
You could find a news story from Newsround - get reading here!

The deadline for entries is 10.30am (UK time) on Friday 22nd May. Good luck!
