Greetings Benninghoven 5th and 6th Graders!! The Kansas Citizenship Program is seeking 5th and 6th grade written pieces for its Citizenship Contest. This year’s theme is “The Leader in Me”. All 5th and 6th Grade students are eligible to submit a literature piece inspired by the theme. Written pieces can be essay, poetry or even a song or rap! Please review the attached program information and rules for your submissions.
THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT A PIECE IS JANUARY 8, 2019.
Each entry must relate to the theme and must be the original work of one student only. It will be judged more on how well the piece relates to the topic than on the technicalities of the writing itself. Help from other students or adults is not allowed.

Have fun, be creative and remember to write about the theme “The Leader in Me”.
