ESLC Essay and Art Contest deadline extended!

Miss ESLC’s Essay and Art Contest deadline in the Halloween rush? We understand! We’re extending the deadline for entries to Monday, November 21.
All public, private and home-school students enrolled in grades 5 to 8 in Caroline, Cecil, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot counties are invited to enter ESLC’s Kids Essay Contest. The ESLC’s Kids Art Contest is open to students in Pre-K to grade 8 in the same counties; they will be judged by age group.
The theme for both contests is “What is your favorite park or place to play on the Shore?”
Tell us about your favorite parks and open spaces on the Eastern Shore. What makes them great? Do you have any dreams for future parks and open spaces? What would they look like?
Make sure to follow all the rules! (Click below for the documents.)
