Lord of the Rings essay contest to net school libraries cash


Here's a literary (by Hollywood standards) twist on the usual blockbuster movie tie-in:

Ramping up to the Dec. 17 release of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, New Line Cinema invites students at selected middle and high schools in New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, and Washington, DC to enter an essay contest on the theme of Gandalf's statement, "All you have to do is decide what to do with the time that is given to you."

A grand-prize winner from each city will receive a package of movie-related gear and a private screening, and New Line will award each city a $10,000 grant toward the purchase of books for public school libraries.

SciFi Wire has the details.


Most people already know this, but the movie coming out Dec 17 is Lord of the Rings:Return of the King, and not "Fellowship of the Ring" as noted.

On another note, Today is the first day that you can buy "Two Towers: Extended Edition", which one review promised would assuage viewers angry at the treatment of Faramir's character.

Frodo Lives!

<blush>That's what I get for assuming the accuracy of the news source, and not really reading the title carefully.Besides, I always did get those two titles confused for some reason.</blush>
