The BC Kids Writing Contest

Do you like to write ? 
If you do... 
think about entering the "Express Yourself: The BC Kids Writing Contest", which is sponsored by the BCLA. (That means BC Library Association) 


If you are between the ages of 8 and 12, and you live in BC then you can enter.  The contest starts June 29th, 2011 and the final day of the contest is September 16, 2011. Winners will be announced in October, which just happens to be Library Month. 


You can write a story, a poem, a play or any other kind of writing you want. Keep the word count to 300 words, and be sure to include these 6 words; zest, book, key, chair, dark, library. The special words make this contest really tricky, but who doesn't like a challenge. Check out the list of judges.  Find out more at http://expressyourself.bclibraries.ca/ 

OK, I might be a little too old for the contest but I am going to try to write something too. 
Get started and bring your writing in during the first week of school. 
Good luck Kent students !  Start writing !
