Here are a few tips to help you craft your story:

  1. Identify who you are writing your story to. Is it a specific elected official or is it a committee? You can find who represents you by visiting
  2. Make your story personal. Write about an experience you had or maybe a friend’s experience.
  3. Use descriptive words. Try to paint a picture in your story.
  4. Include your name, where you go to school, the city or town you live in.

Here’s a great way to start your story:
