BHA is hosting a creative writing contest which is open to Carbon County students in grades 4-6. Students are challenged to create a conclusion to an unfinished story about a dog who is chained to his house. This story is intended to promote kindness and compassion for both animals and people.
During our 2014 winter school presentations, we will explain the contest and give each participant two weeks to complete his/her story. The contest will begin on February 1st and all submissions will be collected by April 1st. BHA will return to the schools and collect the finished stories after the two week period.
Or students my read the “Breaking the Chain” story by clicking here and write an ending to the story on a separate piece of paper. Please include your name, age, school/home school on the top of the page and email to
or mail to BHA, PO Box 2333, Red Lodge, MT 59068.
BHA will choose a First Place and Honorable Mention from each school. The top authors will receive an educational tour through the Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary and a pizza party on May 3rd. First Place students will also have their “ending excerpts” published in the Carbon County News and BHA’s newsletter and website.
We are looking forward to reading the creative solutions for the chained dog, Barkley.
