With the motto, "Today's Families – Tomorrow's Future," Kern County Family Week will be celebrated November 14-20. In honor of this national celebration of families, students (grades 1-12) can enter its annual Creative Expression Contest. This year's theme is "What My Family Means to Me." Participants can enter one of two categories, creative writing or artistic expression. Four Grand Prize Winners will be selected by a panel of judges and awarded with prizes for each grade level in each category. Entries must be received by Monday, October 25, and will not be returned.
