Education.com Story Challenge
You know we are all about learning at Education.com–and we know that writing is an awesome way for kids to learn about themselves and spark their creativity. As part of our Reading Month celebration, we are in launching, for the first time, the Education.com Story Challenge!
During the month of March, parents can submit their children’s original story to Education.com using our printable online form. The story can be fiction or nonfiction, really anything — as long as it comes from your child!
At the end of the month, Education.com will select one story submission for each grade range (PreK–1, 2–3, 4–5) and turn it into an Interactive Story, complete with illustrations and narration on our website. (For rules and details, please click here.)
To submit your child’s or student's story, download a parent or teacher Story Submission Form then follow the instructions below.
Step 1: Information and Permissions (required)
Please download, read, and complete the Parent/Guardian Consent Form on page 3 of the Story Submission download from above. All forms require a parent or legal guardian’s signature.
Step 2: Write (or illustrate) Your Story
Have your child or student write a story — or an idea for a story — using our Story Submission Form. Consider having younger children use the form to draw a picture to convey their story.
We also recommend asking older children to outline their idea on a separate piece of paper before submitting their final draft.
Step 3: Submit Your Story
Take a photo of or scan your completed story submission page, along with your signed submission approval form, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be sure the image is high resolution enough so that all writing is legible and all illustrations are clearly visible.
