Do you know kids who participated in the Summer Creative Writing Workshops sponsored by WITS and the Rice School Literacy and Culture Project? Do you know kids who have spent this hot summer scribbling odes at the park and pantoums at the pool? Please encourage them to enter the contest sponsored by Creative Communications.
Children K-12 may enter poems and essays and are eligible for publication and award money (50% of the entries are accepted so students have a good chance to see their work in print). This contest prides itself on being different from many of the other writing contests for children. It has NO entry fee and it sponsors 3 contests a year. Winners are selected by region and grade levels across the United States and Canada. Authors of the top 10 poems and essays are given a $50 savings bond and a free copy of the book in which they are published.
The postmark deadline is August 18th! Encourage all your young friends to revise their work and send it in today!
