Montgomery County students are invited to enter original work in the Bethesda Literary Festival’s Youth Writing Contest sponsored by The Bethesda Urban Partnership Inc. and Washington Parent.
Students should write an essay of 100 to 500 words about one thing they do well. The top 10 to 15 winners will be published in Washington Parent magazine and receive a certificate and prizes, including gift certificates from Barnes & Noble. All winners and their teachers also will be honored at a special event during the Bethesda Literary Festival from April 19-21.
The contest is open to students in grades K-8 who live or attend school in Montgomery County. Students can enter the contest on their own or through their teacher, if the whole class would like to participate.
Entries must be postmarked by 5 p.m. March 1. No faxes or emails will be accepted.
