Blog: The MarylandCAN Spring 2012 Tell Your Story Essay Contest

MarylandCAN: The Maryland Campaign for Achievement Now is launching a statewide essay competition for students.

The legislative session might be over, but our work isn’t.  Over the next few months, MarylandCAN: The Maryland Campaign for Achievement Now, will be touring the state to talk with parents, teachers, elected officials and community members about what it will take to close our achievement gap.  We’ll keep you informed and engaged with pictures, video and powerful statements from people all over the state of Maryland. 

To start, we want to hear from those at the center of our work: students.  This week, we’re launching The MarylandCAN Spring 2012 Tell Your Story Contest. We’re asking students from across the state to tell us their stories and share what they think will close Maryland’s achievement gap.

Click here for more information on The MarylandCAN Spring 2012 Tell Your Story Contest and please help us spread the word by sharing it with your family and friends. The application deadline is Friday, June 1st, 2012.

We look forward to hearing what Maryland children have to say.
