Please pardon the cross-posting.

The Oregon State Archives publishes the Oregon Blue Book (and the related website<http://bluebook.state.or.us/>) and they are starting work on the 2017-18 edition. Secretary of State Jeanne Atkins wants to include Oregon school children's essays about our state's outdoor recreational activities. There is a specific prompt for elementary, middle, and high schoolers, and the brief write-ups must be received by Wednesday, October 12, 2016. For specifics, see this press release: http://bluebook.state.or.us/misc/news/blue-book-submissions.pdf.

This activity could be done in the library, and it ties in nicely with the 2016 summer reading theme of wellness and fitness. Teachers and homeschooling parents may want to know about this student writing opportunity.
