PTA Writing Contest

Short Story Contest

December 14 – January 8th

This is a PTA sponsored writing contest.   This is not a required school/teacher assignment.

This is something the kids will do at home by themselves or with the help of parents as needed.  We want to encourage creative writing, and storytelling.  With this simple topic we believe all the students can come with an idea to write about.

The PTA will pass out information to the students on December 14th to be taken home.  They will have all of Christmas Break to work on it and stories will be due in the office by January 8th.  We will have a PTA bin in the office that the children can place their stories in.

*Please have them put their full name, teachers name and grade on their papers.

What to write about:

Think of your best day ever.  What did you do? Where were you? How did you feel? Who were you with? What do you remember? Use descriptive words that help the reader picture the story.  Since it is a story you can also use pictures.
