2013 Easter essay contest on tap
Kiedrowski said he is inviting children in kindergarten through sixth grade in 100 words or less to tell the Easter Bunny why you are “egg” cited to live in the City of North Tonawanda.
The Easter bunny would like you to include an illustration or photograph with your writing.
Winners will receive a special prize, as well as, a certificate celebrating their accomplishment at the 6:30 p.m. April 16 common council meeting.
Superintendent of North Tonawanda Schools Mr. Gregory Woytila and Kiedrowski will present the prizes and certificates jointly.
Kiedrowski said he hopes to accomplish several goals with the contest.
“First off, we’re trying to encourage literacy and creativity here. We want kids to use their imaginations, have fun, and write great stories,” Kiedrowski said. “But we also are interested in seeing what makes NT a great city to live in”.
He added, “My goal with this essay contest is to help instill a level of comfort in our youth in contacting their local government, so that, when they become adults, they are more apt to engage their elected representative.”
