Last week I talked to all the 4th graders in the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District about what the life of a writer is like.
Now…as a follow-up, here’s a fun contest for the students and teachers I talked to. To enter the contest, all they need to do is leave their answer to at least 1 of the questions, below, as a comment to this post. Along with their answer, students need to include their first name and last initial, and the name of their school and their teacher’s name. Teachers who enter the contest just need to leave their name and the name of their school with their comment.
NOTE: Since many of the students are taking standardized tests this week, this content will not end until May 1, 2012.
Every contest needs some prizes, so here’s what I’ll be giving away to the student winners of this contest:
A paperback copy of my book, The Lucky Baseball, to 3 lucky winners who answer at least 1 question correctly!
A paperback copy of my book, Shoelaces, to 1 lucky winner who answers at least 1 question correctly!
Here’s what I’ll be giving away to 1 lucky teacher who answers at least 1 question correctly:
A library bound copy of my book, The Lucky Baseball, for their school library or the teacher’s class library.
Okay, so here are the questions. Remember, each question you answer correctly gives you 1 entry in the contest. Good luck!
1. Name one reason being a writer is the perfect job for me (Suzanne Lieurance).
2. Name 3 ways I (Suzanne Lieurance) get ideas for things to write about.
3. When I go to a coffee shop to write, what is my purpose for going there?
Okay. That’s it. Good luck, Lee’s Summit 4th graders and teachers! I hope you’ll enter the contest.
