As part of the OBOT effort, Trumbull Library is sponsoring an essay contest for school aged children in grades K-8. The subject of this opinion essay is, “If you had a parent elected as President of the United States, would you or would you not want to grow up in the White House?”
Entries may be handwritten or typed, and may include one illustration. The entries will be judged on the strength of overall structure (leads, transitions, endings, organization); development (elaboration, craft); and conventions (spelling, punctuation). Notes, graphic organizers, and drafts should be attached to the final essay.
