Contest for the 8-18er's

Courtesy of anyhoo

This one has a long lead time. Entries aren't due until March 30, 2009. The Listen to a Life Contest is an awesome opportunity for the younger generation to connect with a member of the older generation (gulp! That's me.) The whole premise is for the young person to interview the oldster (parent, grandparent, friend of family, aunt, uncle, the list is endless) about their dreams and how they achieved them or advice they would offer. Or maybe how they overcame obstacles.
After the interview the young person writes a 300-word essay based on the interview.

The site even offers tips and sample interview questions. If that's not enough they even provide a link to winning entries from last year.

What are the prizes you ask... That would be here.
