Grand County Library’s Scary Story Contest poised to begin

Once upon a time, every year in the Valley,

a contest is held; You’re invited to rally…

Kids, short and tall, 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 28th Annual Scary Story Contest for elementary students as well as a contest for middle schoolers! This is a chillingly fun activity designed to help children develop literacy skills and channel creative imaginations.

Stories for elementary students must be 100 to 500 words in length while middle school students must write from 400 to 500 words. Entry forms are available at your local library. (Younger students are encouraged to obtain parental assistance.) Stories are due the week of Oct. 12. Check with your library for details.

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.

Please visit your local Grand County library for more information. We are eerily awaiting the arrival of your frightful tales. Have a Haunting Halloween!
