Blue Star Families to hold essay contest
Blue Star Families wants to know what books your military family is reading together. During April, the month of the military child, Blue Star Families invites military kids everywhere to share their family’s favorite book for a chance to win great prizes!
Blue Star Families is hosting an essay contest for military children in kindergarten through fifth grade. Any child with a parent or sibling in active duty, Reserve, or National Guard service can enter by answering the question, “What is your favorite book to read aloud as a family and why?”
From the 100-word-or- less entries, Blue Star Families will select four winners at the end of the month for prizes, including a Barnes & Noble Nook, a webcam, and more.
Each entry should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before 10:59 p.m. on Saturday, April 28.
