Earth Day Writing Challenge

This annual contest is a wonderful way for teachers to encourage their students to think more about how we should treat our earth by giving them the chance to write poems or essays on how we can "Work Together to Create a Healthier Tomorrow!"  This contest is offered for 3rd and 4th grade students. Students are not required to draw a picture to go along with their poem or essay, but many of them do and it adds a lot to the presentation.

Awards Ceremony will NOT take place this year :(

February 24 through June 5
