Got something to say? A story to tell? Feelings to express? Your words may be worth $$$$! Put your
pen to paper or fingers to the keyboard. Write a poem, short story or personal narrative. Enter it in
The California Writers Club/Mt. Diablo Branch Young Writers Contest!
For 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in Contra Costa County
Prizes for short stories and poems at EACH grade level include $100 First Place, $50 Second Place and $25 Third Place,
AND The Betty Tenney Essay Award of $100 for personal narrative for each grade level.
Last year, there were also second and third place winners in the personal narrative category. There may be again
this year - it's up to the judges' discretion.
Winners, their families and friends will attend a banquet
in their honor and have their names in the Contra Costa Times.
