Big Read Essay Contest For Teens


The Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System and the National Endowment for the Arts invite all high school students to participate in The Big Read Essay Contest!

Closes Friday, January 18, 2013. 

Attention high school students! The Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System is the proud recipient of the 2013 Big Read grant, a program of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), in partnership with Arts Midwest, designed to revitalize the role of literature in American culture and to encourage citizens to read for pleasure and enlightenment. Look for all the exciting programs and events surrounding A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest Gaines. But for now Atlanta and Fulton County youth are encouraged to craft a letter supporting an opinion (either pro or con) on the Death penalty in the state of Georgia. A typed letter supporting your opinion should be submitted to your local Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System Young Adult Librarian.  All essays are due by 5:00 p.m. Friday, January 18. Two winning submissions will be submitted to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution (AJC) for possible publication. See full contest rules at your local branch or visit and see Latest News “The Big Read Essay Contest.”

We certainly hope we have a last minute surge of submissions. Good luck to all of our entrants!
