Youth Writing Contest Opportunity

on February 20, 2009


Tell us what you would write to President Obama on one of
these critical global issues: child labor, climate change
and the developing world, world hunger. Your letter can be
in the style of a factual essay or a fictional story. Must
be in English, unpublished, original and unaided. Deadline
March 22, 2009. Three categories:

Junior: Age 12 to 15 – Up to 1,000 words.
Senior: Age 16 to 18 – Up to 1,500 words.
Adult: Age 19+ – Up to 1,500 words.

Prizes awarded in each category with special awards for
the best entries from third-level and community and adult
education sectors. The prizes for last year’s writing
competition included laptops, ipods and subscriptions to
National Geographic Magazine. All of these prizes were
kindly sponsored and we hope to do the same again this year.
