The theme for our Summer Learning Program is Imagine Your Story, and we’d like you to do just that!
The Kaukauna Public Library is hosting a writing contest, where you can dream up any story you like and submit it for prizes! Each age bracket will be judged by library staff members, and the winners will receive a prize packet. Stories will be judged based on imagination, character, setting, plot, and theme. Stories can be typed or handwritten, and we love to see illustrations! Let your imaginations run wild!
Stories are due to the library by August 1, 2020. You can hand them in at the front desk, email them to email@example.com, or mail to Kaukauna Public Library, 207 Thilmany Road Ste 200, Kaukauna, WI 54130. Make sure your name, age (if under 16) and contact information is at the top of your story. We will announce the winners at the end of the Summer Learning Program on August 14th. We’re looking forward to reading your stories!
