A challenge to kids grades 3-5 – Burt

Friday, April 17th, 2009

blogcage.jpg“Be Kind to Animals” week starts May 4 and Burt has sniffed out a great contest for kids to showcase their creative writing skills AND help animals. Children in grades 3 to 5 are invited to use their imagination to finish a story about Duke, a dog that has been chained and is lonely and frightened.

The contest is sponsored by Naperville Area Humane Society (NAHS) and runs through May 1. The winning entry will be featured on the NAHS website and the winner will be able to spend a day “behind the scenes” at the shelter.

Kids, put on your thinking caps, read the story, and enter today! If you enter, please let Burt know by sending a quick comment. Good luck!
