Sand Dragon Competition

The 2019 winning sand dragon, with proud sculptor, Pikea Bennet.

Summer’s here again–time to hit the beach and make sand dragons!

Are you 18 years old or under? Do you like to play in the sand?

Go to the beach and make a sand dragon before 31 March 2020. Take a photograph of you and your dragon and send it to me for your chance to win a signed copy of one of my books!

The winner will be announced the first week of April, just in time for the release of  Dragon Homecoming—book 4 of the Dragon Slayer series.

Children must have parental permission to enter the contest, and must provide a valid e-mail address to win. By entering the competition, you agree to let Robinne Weiss use your photograph for promotion purposes, on her website and on social media. By entering, you’ll also subscribe to my mailing list so you’ll be the first to know about new releases, cool books by Kiwi authors, and great book deals. (Don’t worry, parents–I won’t clog your in-boxes with junk. I’m terrible at remembering to send out newsletters!)

Ready to enter?

Send an e-mail to with ‘Sand Dragon Competition’ in the subject field. Include ALL of the following in your e-mail:

  • Your name
  • Your age
  • An e-mail address I can contact you at if you win (a parent’s e-mail is fine)
  • The beach where you made your dragon
  • A photograph of you and your dragon
  • Anything you’d like to tell me about your dragon and how you made it

If you win the contest, I’ll be in touch by e-mail to get your postal address and to find out which book you’d like for your prize (Yes! You get to choose!)

Good luck and happy sculpting!
