The Legacy Project’s annual Listen to a Life Essay Contest help students travel time as they interview an older adult about their life experiences and then submit a 300-word story to send a message around the world and into the future. All winning essays become part of the Legacy Project’s online Legacy Library, recording life wisdom that can make the world and the future a little bit better. One grand-prize Legacy Timeless Award winner will receive a Lenovo ThinkCentre computer and a keepsake timepiece from Expressions of Time. Ten Legacy Award winners will also receive a keepsake timepiece from Expressions of Time, and all winners will receive a framed award certificate and an autographed copy of Dream, an award-winning bestseller about time, legacies and dreams across a lifetime.
