If you’re looking for a little motivation to get your teen writing this summer, the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System is running a writing contest with cash prizes.
The contest asks for essays of 250 words or less about a real-life hero who had an impact on the writer’s life.
Entrants must live in Fulton County or attend a Fulton County public school, and must be 12 to 18 years old. The submission deadline is August 1, 2015.
Full contest rules are available at the library’s web site
