This year’s topic asks students to write a story, an essay, a poem, or a story board (comic strip) about a situation, a person, or an event that they feel captures the idea that breaking down or climbing over barriers in life can lead to wonderful things happening for themselves, their families, their community, their school, and/or the world.
Eligible contestants include 1st – 8th grade students attending school in the Hauppauge School District and private or parochial schools served by the Hauppauge Public Library.
