Here’s a very exciting contest for Canadian kids.
I’ll start with the best part – the winner gets a home visit from Robert Munsch! How exciting is that? (Extremely.)
To enter, simply write a short story with your family and submit it here.
If you win (and we’re gonna repeat this 'cause it’s awesome) Robert Munsch will come to. your. home. And he’ll read your story. And he’ll do a free reading at a school or library of your choice.
Plus, your story will be published in a newspaper or magazine and posted on the ABC Canada Literacy Foundation’s website.
*A child must be the primary author, but one adult must also be involved.
*250 words or less.
*The story must have a “singing” theme to tie in with the 2010 Literacy Day “Singing for Literacy” event.
*December 11, 2009, 5 p.m. EST.
Family Literacy Day was created by ABC Canada and is held every year on Jan. 27. There’s lots of other stuff happening to celebrate that day.
Well, not only is this a great contest, but this is the first video I've ever embedded on my blog. Good for me! (Let's hope I don't get sued - I assume this video is copyright-free? I mean, it's basically an ad, right? And they'd want as many people to, uh, see it as possible? Gulp.)
