State Assemblyman Edward Braunstein on Oct. 13 announced his office will be holding its annual Halloween essay and drawing contest for constituents in his district. Students in grades two through five who live or go to school in Assembly District 26 will be eligible to take part in the contest.
According to the rules of the contest, each essay or drawing must have a Halloween theme.
