The competition is open

trip to the beach or a dream island vacation. Work can be
fiction or non-fiction. Students are limited to one entry.
Submissions must be
postmarked (or sent via interoffice mail
to the Foundation) by August 12, 2015.
First, second, and third
place winners will be chosen among students rising into three
grade categories: K-2, 3-5 and 6-8. Entries will be judged on
creativity, presentation and correspondence to the theme.
Winners will be announced
online no later than August 20, 2015. Prizes will be awarded at
the City of Kennesaw’s Pigs & Peaches BBQ Festival on August 22,
2015, and include tickets to several area attractions, t-shirts,
