We have all been there. We’ve gotten close to a family, lost a patient, or have seen a child panic when their routine is interrupted.
We have also experienced triumph, happiness, and pride.
LSQ and Playworks.net is interested in the emotions you’ve experienced. We’re asking you (or a family) to write a short story about an experience you’ve had for a chance to win a 52 card deck of A-Z Onion Head Feeling Cards!
How to submit your story:
What: Writing Contest for CCLS, students, interns, parents, and children* (no need to be a professional writer! We have editors here, just let loose!)
Topic: Feelings in the Hospital (all emotions welcome). Choose a feeling, then tell us about an experience you had with this emotion. (e.g. Joy: Feeling joy that a scared child finally felt confident about surgery after your medical play teaching)
Length: 250-900 words (or 1-2 pages in Microsoft Word)
Prize: 52 card deck of A-Z Onion Head Feeling Cards. Use these with your patients to identify and explain what feelings that might be experiencing in the hospital!
Deadline Extended: November 15, 2012
*Children’s stories will need to be submitted with permission by their parents
