CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- If you've ever wanted to go to space camp, you just might get the chance this summer. The Kanawha County Public Library, the Ray family and the Friends of The Library Foundation will grant one young reader an out-of-this-world trip to the Huntsville, Ala., camp this summer.
The contest is open to participants in the KCPL child and teen summer reading programs. To enter, simply write a one-page essay on why you want to go to space camp, and turn it in to your local library or email it to spacec...@kanawhalibrary.org by July 9.
Participants must be age 7-14 at the time of their trip, and trips must be taken by Aug. 31, 2013.
Entries must be typed and accompanied by a cover sheet, available at any local library or www.kanawhalibrary.org. It must be signed by you and your parent or guardian.
The grand prize is a three-day, two-night trip for four (two adults and two children) to space camp, lodging, on-site meals, gas cards to cover fuel costs, a signed copy of Homer Hickam's "Crater" and more. Four runners-up will receive a signed copy of "Crater."
