We are getting close to summertime and that mean's the Big Bang Celebration is only a few months away. With that comes an essay contest for children in fifth-seventh grades.

The winner will get to ride in the Fourth of July parade and will receive a Kindle Fire HD 8.

The essay has to reflect on the history of why the Fourth of July is so important, and must be between 600-1,000 words. Essays are due Wednesday, May 31.
