Writing Contest

Guidelines


Again in 2014-2015 the Writing Conference, Inc., sponsors writing contests for elementary, junior high/middle and high school students.

Students may create a poem, a narrative, or an essay. Only one piece of writing from a student may be submitted. Each of the  first place winners will receive a  plaque; second and third place winners will receive a certificate commemorating the award. In addition, these winners may choose to have their writing published in
The Writers' Slate

ENTRIES MUST BE RELEVANT TO THE TOPIC FOR THIS YEAR'S CONTEST. THE TOPIC
CHANGES FROM YEAR TO YEAR. CHECK OUT THE TOPIC BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR WRITING.

Award winning writers are reminded that their pieces will be published in The Writers' Slate whose audience is comprised of students and teachers at the elementary, middle, and secondary levels.

English teachers are reminded NOT to submit classroom sets of writing. Judges volunteer their time and should not be expected to read entire classroom sets when a few of the best entries would have been appropriate.

The writing that is submitted must be original and can not have been published previously.

The deadline for all entries is January 8, 2015
Winners will be notified in February 2015.

The
topic for the 2014 - 2015 contest, the narration, exposition, and poetry scoring guides and the form for attachment to the pieces of writing are available on line. The writing and the name form should have been returned no later than January 8, 2015. Students should not put their name on the writing itself. Their names should be on the attached form only. Also, all parts of the form must be filled in; any part missing will mean the writing is not accepted.  Students must type the information on the submissions form.  If not typed, the entry will be discarded.
