Roxie Lancaster Children’s Holiday Writing Competition

The Roxie Lancaster Children’s Holiday Writing Competition is sponsored by the Arts Council of Montgomery, Regions Bank, Friends of the Public Library, and Montgomery City-County Public Library System and honors the late Roxie Lancaster, a loyal supporter of the arts in Montgomery. 

Montgomery County children in 1st – 5th grades are invited to write a short essay about Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa, winter, December or any other appropriate seasonal topic. Arts Council board members serve as judges. Criteria for judging the essays are: originality, imagination, and the ability for students to express themselves coherently. Students, parents, and friends are invited to an awards ceremony where the children’s winning essays are read aloud by a local celebrity. The event ends with a fun reception of punch and cookies.
