What: Essay Contest
When: May 6, 2015 – July 10, 2015
Where: Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library
1001 Powell Street
Norristown, PA 19401

The Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library is participating in a national essay contest called “A Book That Shaped Me”. This contest is for children entering grades 5 and 6. They will be required to write a short (one-page) essay about a book that has resonated with them.

From the website:

“Books have the power to shape us by changing the ways we think and feel. Think about a book that made a difference in your life. It could be your favorite book, one that you read at school or as part of this year’s summer reading program. How did it make you feel? Did it change the way you see yourself, your family or the world? Choose one book – it can be fiction or nonfiction – and write a short essay about how it had a personal impact on your life.”

State finalists will receive prizes and be honored at the Book Festival in September in Washington, DC.
