The Read2Me Essay Contest is an annual contest open to all students in Macon County, including homeschoolers, in grades 3-8. This year, each contestant will be writing an essay describing an award-winning book, and its impact on the student, using scenes and quotes from the book or from other works to illustrate the book’s impact. The Read2Me Essay contest is sponsored by The Rotary Club of Franklin and The Macon County News.
The Rotary Club and the Read2Me program applaud all of Macon County’s young readers. The goal of this year’s essay contest is to encourage students to read exceptional literature, and write an essay using critical thinking skills to convey how the book was important, influential, or thought-provoking.
