12th Annual Writing Contest: If My Pet Could Talk…

Have you ever looked at your pet and wondered what they were thinking? Now is your chance to jump into the mind of your pet and tell us what they would say!

Lexington Family Magazine is hosting its 12th annual Writing Contest and this year’s theme is “If My Pet Could Talk.”

Would your gerbil have an accent? Would your fish tell jokes? Would your dog have some words for the mailman?

The possibilities are endless for what your pet might say if given the opportunity.

So grab a pen, a pencil, or your keyboard and start brainstorming.

Send us your story and you could win one of many awesome prizes- including Lea, the new American Girl Doll, classic model horses from BreyerFest, a prize package from the YMCA of Central Kentucky, and more!

The winners will be announced at our annual Summer Camp & Activities Fair on Saturday, April 9.

Entries will be judged in three grade categories: K-1, 2-3 and 4-5. Stories are limited to 100 words for grades K-1, 150 words for grades 2-3 and 200 words for grades 4-5.

The school with the highest percentage participation will received a prize of $250 through a sponsorship by Midway College.

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