Last month I mentioned that I was entering Stage of Life’s writing contest for parents. The prompt was – “What is your philosophy on extracurricular activities?” Not an easy one given how young my daughter is.
I’m happy to announce my entry—Why Can’t My Toddler Be the Next Hope Solo—took the top prize. Happy dance. Happy dance. Now that’s enough celebrating.
I write to invite you to flex your essay writing skills in the next contest. Stage of Life asks for personal stories about a specific moment your Mom or Dad taught you something important. The contest ends June 30. It’s a great way to express yourself, there are prizes involved, and at 500 words or less, you can squeeze this contest into even the busiest schedule.
