Summer is just around the corner, but Americans For Schools is sponsoring an essay contest in which kids could win Fun Cards for Rigby’s Entertainment Complex, and schools get much-needed funds for textbooks and classroom materials!
Here’s all you have to do:
- Make sure the child writes his/her own essay on their five favorite foods. Where does your favorite food come from? Draw a picture of your favorite foods and where they come from. Just one page, and it can be colorful.
- Go to Americans For Schools’ Facebook page (www.facebook.com/AmericansForSchools) and “Like” the page.
- Go to AmericansForSchools.org and create an account (if you have already, just login).
- In the Essay menu at the top of the screen, select “Submit New Essay.”
- Follow the instructions to enter the essay. You’ll need a photo or scan of the essay that you can upload to the contest; if you took the photo with your smartphone or tablet, use that device to enter the contest; that way you can upload the picture directly from your phone or tablet.
DEADLINES EXTENDED! Entries will be accepted from now until Friday, May 23, and voting will be from May 24-30. Entries and votes can be shared on Facebook, so you can urge friends and family members to like, share and vote! Three student winners will be announced from each school on June 2.
