Attention all young writers! Delta Dental is hosting a Spanish writing contest! The “Tooth Be Told” story contest is offering kids age 12 or younger a chance to get published and earn great prizes for winning the dental health-related story contest.
This is a great opportunity for our bilingual kids to practice their Spanish writing skills, have a lot of fun, and maybe even win great prizes. So parents, encourage your niños to pick up a pencil and let their imaginations soar. The stories can be about anything from a singing toothbrush to the tooth fairy, or maybe your kids got a visit from el Ratoncito Peréz instead? As long as they are getting creative and learning about dental health in the process, they’re on the right track.
The top three winners will each get their story published on the MySmileKids website. They will also be awarded a gift basket filled with MySmileKids accessories, Spanish story books, and a $50.00 Amazon gift card.
You can read up on the details at MySmileKids.com, and have some fun checking out the games and interactive tools to help kids learn about dental hygiene.
