Issaquah students can join sister-city writing contest

By Staff

Students interested in sustainability and sustaining international relations can participate in a writing contest organized by Sister Cities International, the citizen diplomacy network set up to create and strengthen partnerships between U.S. and international communities.

Students ages 13 to 18 can enter a personal essay or poetry into the contest. Using the theme “Shaping Your Community for a Greener Future” as a guideline, participants should illustrate how they, their community or their sister city is working to protect the local environment.

Issaquah has sister-city relationships with Chefchaouen, Morocco, and Sunndal, Norway.

Learn more about the contest at Sister Cities International website, www.sister-cities.org/programs/yas.cfm. The deadline for submissions is April 29.
