    Young Author Projects

    Projects are due to the office no later than Friday, January 23, 2015. If your child wishes to submit a project for this contest, the majority of the work needs to be done at home. Here are some guidelines to follow:


    · Work must be original and should demonstrate creativity.

    ·  The story must be written in the child’s own words and should be of interest to the child’s own age group.

    · Illustrations may be done by the child.

    · Parents may give suggestions as to how to improve the manuscript. They may serve as editors but not as co-authors.

    · Quality counts. Many pages that say nothing will not make a winner.

    · Spelling, punctuation, and grammar must be perfect in the final copy.

    · Dictated books may be typed or handwritten by an adult.

    · The book should have an attractive front cover, title page, clean back cover and be formatted as much as possible like trade books for primary school children.


    Those selected will receive building recognition and Community members will select (3) three representatives from all students that participated in district.  Those students will receive plaques and will be honored at the March 10, 2015 Board of Education Meeting.
