2nd Annual Express it in Eight Contest

05 Apr

Inspired by SMITH Magazine’s six-word memoirs (see book display in library), the MW Library invites students and faculty at MLWGSGIS to Express It in Eight (one word for each letter of our illustrious school acronym): capture the essence of you or your life at this moment – in eight words.

Contest Details for Express It in Eight

  • When is the contest? Monday, April 11 through Friday, April 29, 2011
  • Where do I submit my entry? In the contest entry box on the library circulation desk or online via a Quia survey.
  • What could I win? gift cards from B&N, iTunes, or Starbuck’s, and the chance to have your entry published in an Express It in Eight book celebrating the glorious diversity and creativity of our school community.
  • May I enter more than once? Yes!  You may enter up to THREE eight-word expressions of you.
  • May I enter anonymously? I’m afraid not.  Each entry must specify the writer’s name, grade level, and English teacher’s name.

For ideas, peruse the six-word memoirs composed by members of SMITH Magazine’s main and teen sites or browse one of their related books.  You get two more words for yours.
