Capturing History - Students Write About COVID
April 1 - June 30
How has the COVID-19 pandemic affected your life?
The Beaverton City Library is assisting with a Girl Scouts Gold Award project by collecting writings from students in grades 6-12 about the pandemic.
Selected writing will be assembled into a booklet and added to the Beaverton City Library’s local history collection. Some writing may also be published and can be kept anonymous if you prefer.
Your writing can be in the form of an essay, a personal story, a poem, or any other form you choose.
Submit writing - April 1 - June 30
Submit your writing as a Word document or PDF online using the form at www.BeavertonLibrary.org/COVIDWriting.
- The Capturing History writing project is open to students in grades 6-12 in Oregon.
- Submitted writing must be your original work.
