Students who participated in summer reading have until Sunday, Sept. 15 to enter the Charles Lafitte Foundation’s Kid’s Corner Summer Reading Adventure Essay Contest.
Students in grades three through 12 attending a public or private school can enter the essay contest if they read a book listed under their corresponding grade level. The essay should explain how the character’s adventure changed the character and how it personally influenced them.
“Reading is a great way for kids to stay busy and entertained over the summer. Not only can summer reading help lead to better academic performance, it’s a fun activity to take up, especially when kids have more free time,” said Kyra Citron, director of Kid’s Corner. “We’re excited to receive many insightful and talented essays from students around the country.”
Winners will receive $1,000 for their school library and a Kindle Fire.
Entries must be typed and emailed to email@example.com by Sept. 15.
