Kansas Book Festival: Writing Contest

The Kansas Book Festival is hosting a writing contest for Kansas children! They award cash prizes for 1st and 2nd place in each of the following age divisions: 3rd-5th grade, 6th-8th grade, and 9th-12th grade. The theme for 2015 is “Changing one of Kansas’ State Symbols”. Students should select one of Kansas’ many symbols (bird, tree, song, etc.) that they would like to change. What would they change it to and why would it make a better symbol than the one we currently have? More information can be found online at kansasbookfestival.com and entries are due by April 30th. Each year the awards are given out at a ceremony at the Kansas Book Festival.
