Colorado students: Write to get into the convention

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Nice idea:

Colorado students have a chance to write their way into the 2008 Democratic National Convention, as part of a "Write to Lead" essay contest announced today at Denver's East High School. One middle school student and one high school student will be selected. They'll win at least one night's entry to the convention.

Leah Daughtry, the chief executive for the Democratic National Convention Committee, which is co-sponsoring the contest, said of the students: "They'll get the VIP treatment." They also get a laptop computer.
To win, students must write about leadership. Entries will be collected through April 18. Details are available at

Hopefully, they'll get in Thursday night. It is just amazing be in a convention hall for a Presidential acceptance speech.
