LILAC is pleased to present the annual Kenneth F. Gambone Writing Contest. Students in grades 4, 7, and 10 are eligible to participate. The student entries must be submitted by a current member of LILAC. Each student must enter two pieces of writing. The first piece is a timed, on-demand writing response to a designated quote. The second piece should be self-selected from the student’s portfolio to reflect his/her best work.  We look forward to seeing your students' work each year nd to celebrating them each spring!
