Remember when you were in grade school and got to make long, colorful, paper chains to represent the number of days toward summer vacation? Remember how much fun it was to rip them off, day by day, and see summer approaching?

That’s how we’re feeling right now as we mark off calendar days toward our student submission deadline. We’re down to 60 days left, and we can’t wait to see what Oregon’s teachers and student writers have in store for us. Start sending those packets our way!

For more details, please check out or contest flyer, our pdf contest packet, and word versions of our lesson plans on the William Stafford Project site.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
