Kids: Write about Saratoga, win ice cream

Students in grades 2 through 8 in Saratoga County are invited this month to tell The Saratogian about what makes summer special.
The contest is part of Saratoga 150, celebrating a milestone anniversary of horse racing in Saratoga.
Select essays will be published in The Saratogian and winning writers will receive Stewart’s ice cream certificates.
To enter, students should ask an adult to share a special memory or experience of Saratoga in the summer and describe what they had to say in 150 or less. Email your essay to by April 30. At the top of the entry, writers should include their name, grade, school, teacher’s and parent’s names, and a contact phone number.
The contest is designed as an exercise in interviewing and writing.
Entries will be considered in three categories — grades 2 and 3, 4 and 5, and 6 to 8. Winners in each category will be awarded ice cream certificates of $25 for first place, $15 for second and $5 for third.
