Annual Writing Contest: ‘If I Could Be in My Favorite Book…’

What if you opened up your favorite book and suddenly found yourself transported into the story itself?

Would you become the newest student at Hogwarts or sneak into Narnia through an enchanted wardrobe? Maybe you’d like to be Junie B. Jones, Madeline, Artemis Fowl or Peter Pan.

Lexington Family Magazine would like to hear from you in our ninth annual Writing Contest.

So kids, turn on your imaginations and tell us in 100 words or less about this year’s topic “If I Could Be in My Favorite Book…”

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

Also, one lucky teacher who enters his or her whole class will win a prize.
