Grab the chance to engage your students into creative writing

Students tend to be lazybones when it comes to writing. How to motivate them to develop creative writing skills during the summer period? 

Kids shouldn't miss an opportunity to participate in creative contests and weird scholarships. Here is the one related to Ghostbusters reboot I found interesting and funny:

They just have to write a short original story describing their actions in the following situation - the army of ghosts is overrunning their school/college/university, add the hashtags #Unplag and #PlagiarismBusters and share it on their Facebook timeline. 

The deadline is coming but you still have time to let their creativity flow!
