Families encouraged to pen children's stories

Story Time in the Park is once again running its summer writing contest, and there is still time to pick up a writing kit.

The winning book will be published and distributed to children attending Story Time in the Park next year. Last year’s winners Michelle Pelletier and Tracy Bonshor will be sharing their creativity on July 11 and August 29 in Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs.

Story Time in the Park is a free family literacy program that runs throughout the summer.

To enter the contest, pick up a kit at the Agassiz or Hope library, or Boston Bar's Family Place. Deadline for entry is August 11, when the books will be sent out to local judges in the community.

Everyone in the Fraser-Cascade region is welcome to submit their own stories for children.
