dead-explaining how their works affected them personally. The contest has three competition levels. Level I is open to readers ingrades 4-6, who are asked to write letters of 100-250 words; Level II isopen to readers in grades 7-8, who are asked to write letters of 250-500 words; Level III is open to readers in grades 9-12, who are asked to write letters of 500-750 words.
There are any number of cash and prizes for the winners. The Deadline is 12/1/05.
If you know any young people, let them know about this opportunity.
