Kids, start writing Good Deed essays

Kids under the age of 18 still have time to participate in the Good Deed Awards.

The local contest is open to all young people, who are encouraged to do a good deed and then write an essay about what they did, why they chose to do it and what happened as a result.

Michelle Petrik, one of the organizers of the essay contest, said the initiative is a way of promoting community awareness.

“We work with a lot of youth and we really want to promote their good-natured attitudes,” she said.

“We want to have a very strong community impact.”

Those who participate in the Good Deed Awards will automatically be eligible to win a free iPad.

Submissions are due by May 13 and can be submitted online by going to www.coquitlamgooddeedawards.com. The essays can also be mailed to 1158D The High Street, Coquitlam B.C., V3B 0C6.For more information, call 604-949-0654.
