Irving Public Library invites Irving ISD students in grades 4-12 and adults to write an essay inspired by this year’s Irving Reads selection, the novel True Grit by Charles Portis. In no more than 300 words, the essay should focus on a time in your life when you or someone you know showed true grit, by sticking to their goals no matter what stood in their way.  Winners will be announced during a special awards presentation held at 6:30 p.m., Oct. 24 at the Irving Arts Center.  Prizes will be awarded to the first ($100), second ($75) and third place ($50) in each category.

More information, rules for submission and the contest entry form are available via the City of Irving’s library website.
