Toledo Library Announces Writing Contest

The Toledo Lucas County Public Library is proud to announce the 2020 Ruth Blank Venner and Mary Jane Blank McCormick Writing Contest. Students (grades K-12) are invited and encouraged to write about someone who makes a difference in their life, the community or the world.

What makes this person extra special? What makes them a superhero? Big and small actions make a difference—what does their superhero do? Students can enter this annual writing contest hosted by the Toledo Lucas County Public Library now through April 4.
Categories and Prizes

Participants will be entered by grade in one of the following categories: grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12. The following prizes will be awarded in each grade category:
* 1st Place = $200
* 2nd Place = $100
* 3rd Place = $50
* Honorable Mentions (6 winners) = $25

To enter, the student's story must:
* Be an original work, which comes solely from the student’s imagination
* Include three parts: a beginning, middle, and end
* Be 500 words maximum
* Be hand-written or typed (12+ point font) and stapled with entry form
* Winners must have parent/guardian permission to receive prizes
