Panelists review the essays and choose the local “Do The Write Thing Challenge” finalists. The finalists then represent Memphis and Shelby County at the national “Do The Write Thing Challenge” in Washington, DC.
The Harlem Globetrotters Night at the Fedex Forum is Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets start at $22 and are available at harlemglobetrotters.com.
