Citizen Writer Challenge
In America, we have so many beautiful and amazing places. Places that have meaning to all of us as citizens — Washington, D.C., Lexington & Concord, Selma, Alabama; places that are geographically stunning — the Grand Canyon, the Smoky Mountains, the Okefenokee Swamp; and places that have personal meaning to us as individuals and smaller communities — towns our ancestors emigrated from, places our friends and relatives live now, favorite vacation spots, town monuments, libraries, ball fields, all kinds of special places.
Make us a map with at least 10 locations (Grades K-5) or 20 locations (Grades 6-12) that are important to you. And we don't just want you to show us the places on a map; we also want you to tell us what these special places are and why they are important to you, so remember to add labels to the points on your map.
