We just learned about this exciting new essay contest thanks to the Readergirlz blog!
In honor of the new release of Lisa McCann’s upcoming new book, Fade, Lisa and Simon & Schuster are hosting a FUND YOUR DREAM essay contest. The question they’re asking readers ages 14-18 is:
What is the Greatest Obstacle You’ve Overcome?
Lisa will choose a winning 500-word essay, and the winner will receive $1000 toward meeting his or her life goals!
The contest is going on now, so click to read the full rules, and it ends on March 6th, 2009.
