The contest was open to all students in grades K-8 attending any public, private or home school in Cobb County. Students were invited to write a short story or essay, in 750 words or less, about what makes their all-time favorite park special or about their plans to visit a state or national park this summer.

A committee of professional educators, sponsors and City of Kennesaw staff judged entries on creativity, presentation and correspondence to the theme. Prizes included tickets to area attractions, t-shirts and goodie bags. The grand prize was a bicycle.
