Beware of Young Writers competitions...

Young Writers is an organisation that runs several writing competitions per year. Their story writing contests usually ask for a ridiculously low word count (100 or even 50 words is not unusual) and promise to put your poem or story in an anthology.

By all means, enter one of these competitions for fun, but be warned. Everybody gets in the anthology. 

Young Writers make their money by publishing every poem or story they get into one of these anthologies and then selling it to parents. Do not be fooled!
