J. Cole’s Dreamville Foundation is slated to launch its “Nobody’s Perfect” writing contest for local kids in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
According to Fay Observer, the contest is inspired by Mother’s Day and encourages entrants to use creative writing to honor their mothers or primary caretakers. Each submitted poem or essay must be between 50 and 350 words and complement the statement “Nobody’s Perfect but my mother is perfect for me.”
Each entry will be judged 80 percent on “originality, insightfulness, creativity and completeness,” while 20 percent will be based on “organization and development of thoughts, use of proper grammar, punctuation and spelling.”
The deadline for submissions will be April 15th and victors will be notified on May 1st. Ten winners will receive an invitation to The Dreamville Foundation’s first Mother’s Day Brunch.
