Tellis Cooper student essay contest offers prize
Local children will get a chance to flex their brains and muscles as part of activities leading up to the Family Day in the Park Back to School Jamboree sponsored by the Tellis Cooper Foundation.
Joy Tellis Cooper, founder of the organization, said students will get the chance to participate in an essay contest and a mini-exercise workshop before the Aug. 7 event in the Blue Building in Greenwood Park.
The essay contest has been a part of the festivities for the past seven years. This year, however, Cooper hopes to see more entries.
