2021 WRITE CHALLENGE


THIS YEAR'S THEME IS CHALLENGE!


The word CHALLENGE has many meanings.  Whether it’s a difficult question that needs to be answered, or a new sport that we want to try, we all face many challenges. What do you think of when you hear the word challenge?  We look forward to reading the many creative ideas that you associate with this year’s theme: CHALLENGE.

 - A stimulating task or problem
 - To take exception to; call into question
 - Something that by its very nature or character serves as a call to battle

 - To summon to a contest of skill, strength, etc.

Interpret the topic however you like, just remember to follow the writing guidelines on the entry form. Good writing will cause to the reader to question, to cry, to laugh - in other words, to think and feel! We can’t wait to read your interpretation!
