Annual Writing Contest: ‘If I Ruled the World…’

What would the world be like if you were in charge? Would you make dessert a required part of every meal? Would you make a law banning bullying?

Or would you require recess to be two hours long? What would your title be? “Queen of the World” or “Emperor of Everything?”

How would your day began if you ruled the world?

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