Watch this page for continued updates as the Library invites an esteemed panel of judges including actors, actresses, authors, bloggers, columnists, comedians, editors, producers, professors, and writers to score the Erma Bombeck Writing Competition. We thank them for their time and expertise!
Award-winning actress Nancy Cartwright is best known to the public as the voice of spiky-headed underachiever Bart Simpson, and also gives voice to Ralph Wiggum, Nelson Muntz, Todd Flanders, Kearney, and Database in Fox-TV's The Simpsons, the longest running scripted television show in history. She is known in the non-profit world as a generous and active philanthropist who gives of her time, energy and resources equally. It is through her work on The Simpsons that she is able to support many non-profit organizations, particularly those that help children. She actively supports Famous Fone Friends and Make-A-Wish Foundation, among others, and in 2007 received the Wish Icon Award, the Foundation's highest honor. But her heart is in the San Fernando Valley, where she hosts seminars teaching families to use communication to improve the dynamic within their households. Nancy remembers her roots, though, and has given generously of her time to the Miami Valley, too. Washington-Centerville Public Library gratefully thanks Nancy for her work as spokesperson for the Dottie Yeck Good Life Award and now a finalist judge for the Erma Bombeck Writing Competition.
