Sponsored by the Legacy Project, the Listen to a Life Essay Contest is an opportunity to build closer connections between the young and old. The contest requires young people (ages 8-18) to interview older people and create an essay based upon what they learn from their interviews. The essays should discuss the interviewees' hopes and goals throughout their lives, how they achieved these goals and overcame obstacles, and how their dreams may have changed along the way. One winner will receive a free Lenovo ThinkCentre computer and a keepsake timepiece from Expressions of Time. In addition, 10 Legacy Award winners will also receive a keepsake timepiece from Expressions of Time. And all winners will receive a framed award certificate and an autographed copy of Dream, an award-winning bestseller about time, legacies, and dreams across a lifetime.
