Have a fourth grader who loves crafting poetry, a fifth grader who creates amazing illustrated stories, or a high schooler with a passion for writing short stories? Now they can each submit their favorite pieces to the contest! Or even submit their best work into each category!
With additional writing options, students can stretch their creative minds even further.
We are now accepting Illustrated Stories from kindergarten, first, second, third, fourth, and fifth graders; Short Stories from fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth, eleventh, and twelfth graders; and Poetry from fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth, eleventh, and twelfth graders.
Winners are selected and prizes - including $100 Barnes&Noble gift cards and Rocket Notebooks - will be awarded. And teachers, don’t forget, if your student places first - you are also awarded!
The contest is open now. The deadline to enter is March 27th.
