I entered this in the creative writing division of the ARBA youth educational contests in 2007, where it won a rosette. If you are a youth member and planning to attend the ARBA convention in Indianapolis, you might enjoy the educational contests. It’s like the arts and craft division at fair. You can enter posters, displays, crafts, woodworking, and much more! You bring your exhibit to convention, but you must pre-enter by September. Details at www.arba.net/youth.htm
