There’s still time to enter Project Reality‘s “Teens Speak Out” Contest, but not much.
The deadline is Thursday, March 15. **UPDATE: 3/12, 2:55pm: I just got an e-mail from Project Reality saying that the entry deadline has been extended to Thursday, March 22.** This year’s format is a little different:
In years past, participants were required to compose an essay to enter the contest. This year, interested teens can enter one of four categories: essay, song, poetry or poster art. This yearâ€™s topic is: â€œSex and the Media â€“ What messages do you think the media should communicate about abstinence?â€
First prize in each category is $500. All Illinois students, ages 13-18, are eligible to enter. You can find out more information on the contest here. Good luck!
