Mrs. P's Be-a-Famous-Writer Contest Is Here Again!

One of my favorite writing celebrations of the year is my dear friend Mrs. P's Be-A-Famous Writer' Contest!  In fact, last year I had the honor of being one of the judges.  It was so much fun!

To start, let's listen to this very special message from Mrs. P herself....

Isn't Mrs. P the best!  

As her website and message states, 

Mrs. P invites your class to write a story on the topic of DRAGONS for the 2017 contest theme, no less than 250 words and not to exceed 1,000 words. It may be fiction or non-fiction. Any classroom from Kindergarten through 4th grade may enter. Just one story per classroom! It can be a collaborative story, or you can have your class vote on which child's story to enter. And there's no database to enter or permission slips to sign. 

You, the teacher, just need to email me the story. It is your classroom entering to win. Please be sure to read my "Official Rules" page for all entry details! Inspire your class by watching past winners of the contest on my Young Author playlist
Josh Funk, Matthew Winner and Mrs. P are the judges this year.  Their bios can be found here.  They will do a wonderful job at picking the very best stories from our young writers.  

You will find all of the information on Mrs. P's Be-a-Famous-Writer site...with the super prizes for the contest too. 
The entry dates start on October 15, 2017 and close on December 15, 2017.  

You can find the entry form for Mrs. P's Be-A-Famous Writers Contest here

We hope that you and your students write amazing stories about dragons to share with all of us too.
