Reading Rockets, AdLit.org offer Citizen Writer contest
| Mar 14, 2011
Reading Rockets and AdLit.org have organized a new Citizen Writer program, offering prompts to writers that make connections to civics, citizenship, and our communities. Reading Rockets and AdLit.org encourage students to think and learn more about America's people, places, and ideals as they write. The Citizen Writer program includes four types of writing prompts designed to match students' interests and stretch their creative skills. The contest includes such challenges as a mapmaking challenge and songwriting and verse challenge. The contest provides four levels of entry: grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Interested participants can enter up until April 30, 2011.
