To start, please completely read the story contest rules below (link) and visit the Zaner-Bloser website to download the writing page to use to complete an entry. All entries will be judged based on the child’s handwriting skills and creativity.

Questions (entrant must choose one):

(1) What was your favorite day of boating or fishing? Who were you with and what did you see?

(2) If you could go boating anywhere in the world, where would you want to go and what would you see?

(3) If you could design the coolest, safest life jacket ever, what would your life jacket be like?

Prizes: Each winner will receive a U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket. Each winner will also receive a “Back to School” pack from Zaner-Bloser and the National Safe Boating Council that will include a backpack, school supplies and a safety whistle, first aid kit, and a Boating Safety “Sidekicks” Go Boating activity booklet.
