LMMM Education Committee Chair Haroldo Williams said, “Our annual Young Writers’ competition provides students with an opportunity to be engaged in learning more about our local and regional history, and about a National Historic Landmark where students can explore American history. As an exciting development to this successful program, this year we are opening the competition to students from public, charter, and private schools throughout Fairfield County. It will be great to see how young students express their thoughts and creativity.”
The stories will be picked up from contestants and their teachers on June 9th and competition winners will be notified by mid-September. Competition winners and their families will be Guests of Honor at the Awards Presentation on Nov. 19, 2017, 2-4 p.m. Requirements for the competition will be tailored to third and eighth graders and posted on the museum website and on flyers distributed.
