My oldest gal is a writer. I don’t just mean she likes to write; I mean she is gifted in it. This girl can spin a story out of thin air better than Rumpelstiltskin can weave gold out of straw. So, naturally, when a competition comes her way, she jumps at the chance to stretch her imagination and go for it!
Just yesterday, another homeschool mommy contacted me and let us know about THIS exciting writing opportunity. Philadelphia Homeschool is hosting her second annual writing competition and it looks to be exciting.
The contest is open to all United States homeschool children from 3rd to 8th grade. All details regarding the competition can be found on the Philadelphia Homeschool website. The writing contest is very well-organized and thought out; judges, prizes, certificates, and more await you.
I am sure my daughter will be thrilled to join in. Not only does she enjoy writing, she really enjoys reading others stories. It fascinates her to learn how they took the same prompt and went in a completely different direction.
Tomorrow I will hand her the prompt and watch her creativity take over. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with this time. I’m sure it will be a good one!
Best wishes for all the competitors; we look forward to congratulating the well-earned winners.
