  • Life on Mars Story Contest

    Have you ever wondered if there really is life on Mars? Do you think humans will be able to visit the planet or even live there someday? Write about it! Your mission is to create a one- to two-page short story about life on Mars. We're looking for fun, creative entries, so use your imagination!

    Things to Consider:
    When you're writing your story, think about what life would be like on Mars. What sorts of beings live on the planet? What do they look like? What do they do for fun? Where do they live? What sorts of funny situations do they get themselves in? Have fun, and let your mind run wild.
