Grand County Library District kicks off Scary Story Contest
September 16, 2014
Once upon a time, every year in the Valley,
a contest is held; You're invited to rally…
K through 5th grades are encouraged to write
a short story to jolt your readers to fright!
A prize will be given for those who dare win.
So bring on the horror! Let the writing begin!
The Grand County Library District is happy to announce its 27th Annual Scary Story Contest for elementary students, Kindergarten – fifth Grades. This is a chillingly fun activity designed to help children develop literacy skills and channel creative imaginations.
Stories must be 100 to 500 words in length, and entry forms are available at your local library. (Younger students are encouraged to obtain parental assistance.) Turn in your story by Monday, Oct. 20.
Every writer who submits a story will receive a creepy prize and is invited to attend a FREE and entertaining Halloween party (costumes are optional). Awards and exciting prizes will be given to talented authors from each grade.
The gracious FRIENDS of Grand County Libraries have sponsored the 27th Annual Scary Story Contest. Thank you FRIENDS. We are grateful for your generosity.
Visit your local Grand County library for more information. We are eerily awaiting the arrival of your frightful tales. Have a Haunting Halloween!
