September 3, 2014 - LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Kid’s Imagination Train, the online magazine, invites children to participate in its first annual writing contest with the theme of winter or holiday stories. Eligible children, ages 7 to 12, must submit their stories by October 1, 2014.
KIT editor, Randi Lynn Mrvos, explains why she decided to initiate the contest. She says, “Kid’s Imagination Train encourages children to be creative by actually illustrating stories that are published online. The writing contest is yet another way children can use their imaginations.”
Mrvos and the KIT staff will read all of the submissions and select a story for publication in the December issue. In addition, the contest winner can choose a book reviewed by KIT. Mrvos says, “We look forward to reading the stories and hope to offer the contest again next year.” For contest guidelines and the list of books go to the KIT website (http://www.kidsimaginationtrain.com/p/editing-services.ht...).
