Writing Contest: The impact of a Senior Citizen

Seventh and eighth graders… do you have a story about a senior citizen who made a difference in your life? Want to write about it?

Gade Health Care Center is announcing its second annual contest for young people. It wants to honor senior citizens through the voices of our youth. It can be a grandparent or any other senior who had an impact on your life. Or maybe it is an eventful story about a relative or friend that was passed down to you by others. Gade Health Care wants to read about it.

A cash prize of $100 will be awarded for the best story by a seventh grader and $100 for the best story by an eighth grader. There will be a panel of three judges: Christina Chalmers, Editor of The Daily Advocate; Ryan Berry, Editor of the Early Bird; and Bob Robinson, Editor of County News Online.

In order to be considered for judging, the story must be 600 words or less, but no name should be on it. On a separate piece of paper, the student must put his or her name and address, phone number, grade, and school. Winning entries plus top runners-up will be submitted for publication to the newspapers and online.

Deadline for the contest is 5 p.m. May 20. It must be received by then at Gade Health Care Center, 405 Chestnut Street, Greenville, OH 45331.  Gade’s Easter Bunny Drawing contest for first and second graders has just been completed. The writing contest is the second conducted by Gade Health Care each year.
