Hudson Valley places focus of contest
HYDE PARK » Teaching the Hudson Valley invites children and teens, grades K-12, to write about places in the Hudson Valley that have special meaning for them.
Students who live and/ or attend school in counties that include Ulster, Dutchess, Greene, Columbia are eligible.
Work should be recent — completed during the summer or fall of 2016 — and submitted by midnight on Nov. 7.
Students in grades K-4 may write poems, paragraphs, or short stories about museums, historic sites or parks in their community or elsewhere in the Hudson Valley. Older students may choose one of two prompts designed to provoke more complex thinking and writing.
All submissions will be considered for publication on group’s blog and are eligible for prizes.
