"A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men"

Willy Wonka

Roald Dahl's Imaginormous Challenge is open to all children aged 5-12 in the US.

To enter and give your child the chance to win one of five incredible Golden Ticket prizes, simply submit your child's story idea of 100 words or less on their behalf.

There is only one judging criterion: Pure Imagination.

Contestants may submit as many story ideas as they wish — though each entry must be no more than 100 words—between 29 January and May 1, 2018.

Your child’s extraordinary imagination could win them and your family one of five Golden Ticket once-in-a-lifetime prizes! 

Willy Wonka will be transforming the five winning story ideas into the following:

Penguin Young Readers: Become an author

Working with the authors of the Hank Zipzer series, Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver, one winner will develop their story idea into a published e-book.

Minecraft Education Edition: An immersive Minecraft world

A team of Minecraft builders will transform and reimagine the winning story idea into a playable Minecraft experience for the winner, and the world, to enjoy.

Charlie the Musical: A theatrical creation

The team behind the Broadway musical Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, will turn one winning story idea into a theatrical creation.

Warner Bros. : A tremendous toy design

One winner and their parent/guardian will be flown to Hollywood to work with the Warner Bros. Consumer Product team to help inspire a new toy design!

Dylan's Candy Bar: A candy creation

Following in Willy Wonka's footsteps and with the help of Dylan's Candy Bar, one winner's idea will be turned into a magical, edible creation!
