This is an important opportunity that can lead to college scholarships
Students in grades 7-12
Eleven Writing Categories (dramatic script, flash fiction, humor, journalism, novel writing, poetry, personal essay/memoir, persuasive writing, science fiction/fantasy, short story, and a writing portfolio for graduating seniors only)
Students who win at the regional level will be honored at an awards ceremony on February 7, 2013 at the Santa Clara Hyatt and Convention Center, and have their work showcased in publications and at local readings. They may then be advanced to the national level.
Step 1: Register at www.artandwriting.org Read each category’s specific guidelines carefully. (The website is extremely dense and complicated to navigate, so I have put together a packet for both the creative writing and visual art departments). Students still need to register on this website.
Step 2: Follow instructions to upload work (can also be send by US mail)
Step 3: Send in required forms
Step 4: Mail check (*50% fee reduction available to students who qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch Program)
