The Milpitas Library Advisory Commission and the Milpitas Library will host its second annual writing contest on Saturday, October 20. The event is open to all Milpitas students in grades 4 - 12, including students who attend schools outside of the city.
There will be three categories for the competition:
Grades 4 - 6
Grades 7 & 8
Grades 9 - 12
A total of ten Kindle Fires will be awarded as prizes.
Students entering the contest will write their compositions in the Library auditorium (160 N. Main St., Milpitas) on Saturday, October 20. The doors will open at noon, and the contest will begin at 1:30 pm. All entries must be submitted for judging no later than 2:30 pm. The subjects the students are to write about will be announced on the day of the contest. Entries may take the form of an essay, poetry, or another format of the student's choosing, but no electronic devices may be used to assist any student. Entries will be judged and prizes awarded that afternoon.
