Hello and Happy New Year's Eve, Giraffes! I wanted to tell you about writing contest that begins tomorrow. NHPTV is holding its annual Writers Contest, and students in grades K-5 can submit stories they've written and illustrated between January 1st and March 31st. Once all of the stories are submitted, judges will select a first, second, and third place winner at each grade level. Some stories will also be selected for honorable mention. It is completely up to you if you'd like to enter--I know many of you like to write and illustrate, and I would love for you to enter a story so you can share your talent with others! It can be a story from class or a story you've written at home. Stories submitted by second graders can be true, fictional, or you could even submit a poem. All writing should be between 100 and 350 words. More guidelines can be found on their Entry Form!
Best of luck, my talented authors and illustrators! I will see you on Monday :)
