Semester 3 Extra Credit Assignment

The following is the text of the letter regarding the extra credit assignment.

February 26, 2013

You may be aware that Green Mountain Power is holding a contest called the Vermont Writers' Prize.  Entries can be sent anytime before November 1st.  The theme is "Vermont--Its People, the Place, Its History or Its Values," and the prize is $1500.  The winning entry will be in VERMONT MAGAZINE in the March/April edition.  Entries can be essays, short stories, or poems and cannot exceed 1500 words.  Send to Vermont Writers' Prize c/o Green Mountain Power, 163 Acorn Lane, Colchester, VT, 05446.

Enclosed is my entry which deals with my hometown of Proctor.  I thought that some of your teachers or students might be interested (and perhaps submit their own entries).
