Young Writer's Competition

Who can participate? Students in grades K-5

When is it due? All writing pieces are due by Wednesday, January 28, 2015

Unlike many writing competitions, the YGA does not provide a prompt to which students must respond or provide any other boundaries to their genre choice or creativity. Writing must be completed by students without assistance. Students may only write on the front side of notebook paper. No drawings or coloring permitted. Entries may include:

· Short Stories, Poetry, Essays/Literary Criticism/Analysis

· Journalism, Academic/Research Reports, Personal Narratives

· Any Other Original Student Writing

One winner will be chosen per grade level. The winner’s writing will be entered into the county competition.

Kindle Paperwhites

The e-book readers, Kindle Paperwhites, are available for teachers in Grades 3 - 5 to check out from the Media Center. The levels range from J thru U.
