We’ve just had three snow days, and there will be so much to do when we are back. However–last year this blog and I sponsored writing contests, and I’ve been meaning to bring them back! This week was my chance to revive these contests!
Here is how it works:
- You will need to log in as a contributor. See directions in the MC Student E-mail.
- Write something, contribute.
- Don’t use your full name: use an avatar name, but make sure you e-mail me and let me know what piece is yours. Submit by February 27.
- Winners will be announced the end of February. There will be a new contest in March.
For February, write an imaginary love letter. It can’t be real human-to-human, but something else–a bug, a god or goddess, novel character, fork to toaster…whatever. Keep it school appropriate, and be creative! The letters will be judged on creativity, persuasiveness, and ideas by anonymous ELA teachers. Seventh and eighth graders can submit.
Remember this is for fun and creativity — not for grades, not to distract you from other work.
