Citizen Writer (
http://www.readingrockets.org/books/fun/citizen_writers ), AdLit.org and
Reading Rockets' 2011 writing contest, offers K-12 students connections
to civics, citizenship, and our communities. Students are encouraged to
think and learn more about America's people, places, and ideals as they
work from writing prompts which incorporate several genres and even some
visual literacy. Kids who enjoy visualizing their ideas may match up
well with the mapmaking challenge; or, students gifted in music and
poetry might want to try the songwriting and verse challenge. Entries
must be received by April 30. 
 
Visit www.readingrockets.org/books/fun/citizen_writers for details.
