The City of El Paso Public Library and the Great Khalid Foundation are teaming up to host a bilingual essay contest for children in honor of Mother’s Day.
The contest is free and open to young people in two categories: ages 5 to 10 and 11 to 18. The contest asks youth to write about their mother or a maternal figure in their life. Mother figures can be aunts, grandmothers, older sisters or others who have served as a motherly influence.
The competition requires participants to write a brief essay answering the contest prompt: “I love my mom because….”
The deadline to submit an entry in English or Spanish is April 29. A panel of judges will select two winners from each category. Winners will receive a luxurious prize package to give to their maternal figure on Mother’s Day.
Additional information, including entry forms, is available on the El Paso Public Library website, www.elpasolibrary.org. Information is also posted on the Public Library social media pages or by calling (915) 212-3217.
