Sorry to post so close to the deadline of 2/28 but I just got this information.
Deadline Extended for Family Story Contest
Because so many people have just learned about The Grannie Annie
Family Story Celebration in the last couple of weeks -- and
because we want as many of them as possible to participate, we
have extended the submission deadline. Entries must be postmarked
by February 21 or e-mailed by February 28. We are sorry if this
extension causes you any inconvenience. Stories selected for
publication will still be announced on April 1, _Grannie Annie,
Vol. 1_ must still be ordered by April 30, and books will still
be shipped in May.
In case you are a new subscriber to _Acu-Write_ and haven't heard
about The Grannie Annie: Students in U.S. grades 4-8, and
homeschoolers and international students age 9 to 14 are invited
to interview family members and write a 250- to 500-word story
about an event from their family's history. Selected stories will
be published in _Grannie Annie, Vol. 1_, a paperback book, so
your children have a chance to become published authors!
You'll find all of the contest details, including the required
entry form, at http://www.TheGrannieAnnie.org .
