Writing contest deadline less than a month away!

April 4th, 2011

You have less than a month until the May 1 adventure writing contest deadline! That’s still plenty of time for your students in all grades to share a piece of adventure writing with us. David Somoza and Peter Lourie, authors of Writing to Explore: Discovering Adventure in the Research Paper, will judge the contest.

The challenge is to send us your students’ best writing about a state or a place they have lived in, visited, or daydreamed about. When we say “writing,” we mean that  any “old” or “new” form of storytelling is acceptable: photo stories, video clips, interviews, poetry, essays, research papers, or even cartoon strips. The important thing is that as we read your students’ work we’ll feel like we’ve been transported to the place they are writing about.

The top five entries will be featured on the Stenhouse Blog. One winner will receive a library of Stenhouse books of your choice (a $150 value), and the following books by Peter Lourie to start your classroom adventure library  (a $180 value): Amazon, Arctic Thaw, First Dive to Shark Dive, Hidden World of the Aztec, Hudson River, The Lost Treasure of Captain Kidd, Lost Treasure of the Inca, Lost World of the Anasazi, On Texas Trail of Cabeza de Vaca, On the Trail of Lewis & Clark, On the Trail of Sacagawea, Rio Grande, Tierra Del Fuego, Yukon River.

The contest is open to all grade levels. Send your stories to contest@stenhouse.com. If you would like to send us a larger file, you can mail a CD or thumb drive to Stenhouse Publishers, Attn: Zsofia McMullin, P.O. Box 11020, Portland, ME 04101-7020.
