Letter-writing contest for dads
The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy invites all fathers and grandfathers to enter its “Devotedly Dad” letter contest as an opportunity to encourage a love of reading and writing in their homes.
Participants are asked to write a letter of 800 words or less to a child or grandchild about the importance of literacy and learning. Write from the heart, the head, or the funny bone and simply sign it ... “Devotedly, Dad.”
Winners will receive an autographed copy of All the Best, My Life in Letters and Other Writings, by President George H.W. Bush, plus a pair of his favorite and fun First Family socks.
Deadline for submissions is Friday, April 12, at 4 p.m. Winners will be notified through email by Father’s Day, June 16.
