"My Mini Adventure" is a fun way for Ben-Hem students to get creative and exercise their writing skills over the summer and win a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble.  

The deadline to sign up for the "My Mini Adventure" creative writing contest is Friday, July 31, 2015.

Student's who sign-up will be given a 1 1/2" wooden person that they can decorate as themselves or as any person or creature that they would like to write about as their main character. 

Then they take their character around to find the perfect setting for their story.  It can be anywhere, inside or outside.  

Once they have found that perfect spot, student's should get down to their mini character's level and look at their surroundings from its perspective.  

Finally, students should develop and write their story.  It can be in any writing type: prose, poem, song, news article, etc.

Stories should be emailed to sth@benhempto.org by August 30,2015.  

Each submission should include the following:

  • A written (or typed) "My Mini Adventure" story.
  • A visual aid (this can be photos, illustrations, video, diorama, etc - be creative).

A panel of judges will review all entries and select a winner for each grade-level group: Kindergarten - Second Grade, Third & Fourth Grade.  The winners will have their entries published to the entire school.  

The winners will receive a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble.  All entries will be published on the STH website.  This contest is open to all 2015-2016 Ben-Hem students. Sign up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d4ea5a729a7fb6-mymini
