Essay contest: A Season of Compassion and Generosity

Students in grades 3-12 are invited to enter an essay contest, A Season of Compassion and Generosity, by reading one of the books for your age group and writing an essay that shows "how the character’s traits of compassion and generosity touched you."

Winners get a Kindle Fire to keep and $1000 for their school's library! However, the books they chose are so wonderful that really anyone who participates will be a winner by virtue of getting to read them.

The deadline is January 31, 2013, so this could be a nice activity for winter break! See the link above for a list of books and full details about how to enter.
