Annual Writing Contest: ‘The Day I Traded Places With My Pet…’

Do you have a pet? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to trade places with him for a day?

Would you become a dog and spend your day barking at the neighbors? Or would you become a cat and sleep in a patch of sunlight all day long?

How about a hamster who goes on an adventure in a rolling plastic ball?

You don’t have a pet? No worries, just make one up. Imagination is the key.

We would like to hear all about your adventures, so sharpen your pencils, pull out the keyboard and crank up your creativity, kids!

Lexington Family Magazine is hosting its 10th annual Writing Contest and this year’s theme is “The Day I Traded Places With My Pet…:”

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 huge collection of books and games for boys, and the latest American Girl Doll and beautiful model horses from Breyer for girls.

Entries will be judged in three grade categories: K-1, 2-3 and 4-5.

We have an exciting new component to our contest this year: a sponsorship from Midway College, which will present a prize of $250 to the school with the highest percentage participation.

(This prize is available to schools with 50 students or more in grades K-5 and is not open to home schools.)

Please e-mail entries to Events@ or mail them by Friday, March 28 to: Lexington Family Magazine, 138 E. Reynolds Rd. #201, Lexington, KY 40517.
