Writing Challenges: Inspiration and ideas to spark your creativity every day

This challenge has $$$ prizes! DUE: March 15. More details here.

1. Write a persuasive essay urging people to take action against the invasive insect, emerald ash borer (EAB). Present a fact-based argument. You might include why this matters, how communities and homeowners can respond to EAB, and why a response is needed.
2. In poetry or prose, tell the story of an ash tree that is threatened by EAB. You might stretch back to the ash tree's history and its important role for the Abenaki people, for wildlife, or for the community where it grows. You could tell a story of empowerment, a tree that rebels and fights back. Or perhaps you have a special relationship with that tree and it dies. What happens? What takes its place? Let your creativity guide you.

Due: March 15. All ages welcome!
