Next Stop, Fiji
Having trouble getting kids to write their traditional “what I did over my summer vacation essay”? Authur Fromer’s Budget Travel Web site can turn it into a class project and provide a little incentive for reluctant writers by offering a week-long trip to Fiji for the teacher. The rules don’t let those under the age of 21 win any of the prizes but they can participate. All the class has to do is register at the site and submit the essay before November 17. It will be judged by the site’s editors with the best one picked. On top of the Fiji trip, the contest will award $500 gift cards for the best travel video and photo. Sorry, the whole class can’t go.
