What should students write about?
Whatever they would like to share that fits the theme “Anything is Possible.” What do you see for the future ̶̶ for yourself, your family, friends, school, community, country, or the world? Or, if you could, would you change something from the past? How would things be different?
What type of writing can be submitted?
Any type! Write a descriptive paragraph, imagine a future experience, describe a past experience that you would change, write an opinion piece, compose a poem, create a short story, develop a graphic story or comic, etc.
How long should the written work be?
There is no minimum length and many pieces are actually quite short. The maximum length is 1000 words.
What if my child isn't sure what to write about?
If your child wants to participate, please register. There is no need to have an idea of what to write in advance. Each student is assigned a teacher mentor who will check in with the student and help get the writing process started if necessary.
Funding for the District 181 Foundation is provided in part by the Theresa Wilkie Memorial Fund.
