Speak Out Contest!

May 1, 2021

SPEAK OUT Contest for Boston Youth
Deadline: June 30, 2021

The Friends of the Roslindale Branch Library are inviting Boston youth in three age groups (Grades 6-8, 9-10, 11-12) to speak out about their experiences this past year.  You may submit an entry in any form and any language.  The name of each person who submits an entry will be entered into a drawing for $100 gift cards (we will have three of these prizes).  When a celebration and the drawing are scheduled this summer, we will invite you to attend (outdoors, socially distanced, etc.).  Please respond to one or both of these sets of questions:

1. What has the last year in a pandemic been like for you as a young person?  What’s been hard?  How have you found joy, strength, and resilience or learned to cope in some way?

2. What are you looking forward to with friends, school, sports, or elsewhere?  What do you hope the future holds?

Submissions can be in any form – art, poetry, rap, recording, multimedia, etc. – and in any language.  Email to roslindalelibraryfriends@gmail.com to submit or to arrange for pick-up/delivery. Please include your current grade, name, address, and a way to contact you by phone or email.
