Creative Writing Opportunity

The Henry Ford is pleased to kick off its Third Annual "Building Stories: A
Creative Writing Contest". Students in grades 3-12 from across the United
States are invited to create a story that celebrates the life and times of
Thomas Edison, one of America’s greatest innovators.

The Henry Ford provides foundational materials, primary sources from our
collections, to set the backdrop for a creative story of historical
fiction. We encourage you to introduce this contest to your library
patrons. The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2015. Students can win
great prizes, including the publication of the grand prize winner’s story
on The Henry Ford’s website, as well as 10 printed copies. You can find the
official rules and contest details at
