Library, Mid-Atlantic Public Libraries Launch Essay Contest – Library of Congress
“The Library of Congress today launched its annual summer essay contest in conjunction with public libraries in the Mid-Atlantic region encouraging rising 5th- and 6th-grade students to reflect on books that have made a personal impact on their lives.
“The ‘A Book That Shaped Me’ Summer Writing Contest is administered as part of summer reading programs at participating public libraries in Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Top winners will be honored during a ceremony at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, Oct.18, 2014. All students who enter the contest can redeem a free contest prize pack at the Library of Congress National Book Festival, which will take place Aug. 30, 2014 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.”
Looks like a great opportunity!
