O'Fallon Seeks Entries For Healthy-Living Story Writing Contest for K-5th Grade

This story-writing contest for K-5th-graders puts the focus on healthy living.

Kids, can you think of a good story about healthy living that would encourage people? If you are an elementary-school-aged kid (K-5th grade) give it a try. You can let your imagination run wild and create an interesting character and exciting original story. Or, base your story on your own personal experiences and write about fitness, eating well, making safe choices, protecting the environment, or any other health-related topic. If you need a little assistance, just ask your parents or your teacher.

The winner of the story will be contacted by Friday, December 7, and the winning story will be announced in January 2013. The story also will be turned into a live performance by Monkey Tales Theatre, and the show will debut at the Renaud Spirit Center’s RSC 5K Fitness Festival on May 4, 2013.

Not only that, but Monkey Tales Theatre will perform the show at the winner’s school. And finally, the story will be spotlighted on several websites.

The story must be at least three pages or longer. The deadline for submission is Tuesday, November 20.

To submit your story, email it to dgrannas@ofallon.mo.us. Or, fax it to 636-474-8190. You can also drop it off at the Renaud Spirit Center, or mail it to: Story Writing Contest, Renaud Spirit Center, 2650 Tri Sports Circle, O’Fallon MO 63368.

For more information, contact Darren Granaas, O’Fallon’s Cultural Arts Coordinator, at 636-474-8150, or dgranaas@ofallon.mo.us.
