Library of Congress Sponsors Writing Contest for Grades 4-12

Below are a flyer and entry form for a fun Library of Congress sponsored writing contest for literature lovers in grades 4th-12th. Mahalo to Young Adult Librarian, Sierra Hampton-Eng for keeping us in the loop!

Students are asked to write a response to the following question:

How did an author’s work change your view of the world or yourself?

Students will compete to win a $1000 cash prize, but it is also a good opportunity for students to reflect on the ways literature has affected their lives (and practice the endangered art of letter writing).
