Annual Writing Contest: “If I Were an Animal”

If you could be any animal at all which would it be?  Would you be a lion and rule as king of the savannah? Or would you be a giraffe who can reach the tallest branches of the tree?

How about a thoroughbred horse winning the Kentucky Derby? Or a sweet little puppy snuggling with his owner?

We want to hear your story, so sharpen your pencils, pull out the keyboard and turn on your imaginations, kids!

Lexington Family Magazine is hosting its eighth Annual Writing Contest and this year’s theme is “If I Were an Animal…:”

To enter all you have to do is write 100 words or less on this year’s topic.

We have exciting prizes for our winners, including a collection of games from Hasbro, the latest American Girl Doll, and beautiful model horses from BreyerFest.

We even have a prize for one lucky teacher who enters an entire class.
