The Talbot Family Network, the local management board, is sponsoring a creative entry contest in honor of Family Day – A Day To Eat Dinner With Your Children™. Family Day encourages parents to frequently eat dinner with their children in order to be more involved in their lives. The conversations that go hand-in-hand with dinner help parents learn more about their kids’ lives and allows for them to better understand the challenges their kids face. Celebrated the fourth Monday of September each year, this year’s observance will be on Monday, September 22, 2007.
Participation in the contest is open to youth who are residents of Talbot County and will be judged according to the following age categories: Early Childhood (up to age 5), Elementary School, Middle School and High School. Youth are asked to submit a creative entry of their choice (picture, poem, song, essay, etc.) with the theme of “My Favorite Family Dinner”.
Submissions should include the child’s name, address, phone number, age or grade, the name of the school he/she attends and parent/guardian name. All entries should be submitted to Talbot Family Network, 142 N. Harrison Street, Easton, MD 21601. The deadline for entry is Friday, September 5, 2008. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, September 17, 2008 at an awards ceremony (details to follow). For more information, contact the Talbot Family Network at (410) 770-6867.
