Lehigh Valley Writing Project announces youth contest
How do a giraffe, an ice cream cone, and snorkeling all fit together in one story? The Penn State Lehigh Valley Writing Project (LVWP) bets there are some kids and adults in the area who can tell them. LVWP has announced a writing contest for youth grades 2-5 and for parents and adults to incorporate any three of a number of items and activities in an entertaining story up to four typed pages long.
A panel of judges will vote for story winners in four categories: grades 2-5, grades 6-8, grades 9-12, and parents/adults. The grand prize in each category is a 50 percent discount off a two-week Summer Writing Camp tuition. A runner-up prize of a 20 percent discount off a two-week Summer Writing Camp tuition will also be announced in each category. The deadline for entries is February 22, 2010, and all winners will be announced in April
