    How do you earn a certificate and where do they come from? Do you just have to submit something, or is there a special selection process?

      Every Wednesday, the Kid Scoop page shows a writing prompt at the bottom of the writing column. Hampshire County students in grades 1 through 6 are invited to send us responses of 100 words or fewer. During the school year, published authors receive ice cream gift certificates.
