Young Writers Guide to Contests | raduchyaco.tk

Each station chooses winners which are then entered in the national contest. Entrants must be under 15 years old and write a compelling news story about a school or community event.

The page book can be fiction or non-fiction and must be created by a group of at least three students. The winning book is published by Scholastic and sold at Scholastic Book Fairs across the country.

Sponsored by the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress , the annual Letters About Literature competition combines both reading and writing. Students must write an essay in the form of a letter describing how a certain book or author has had a profound effect on their outlook on life.

Students are grouped by age into three different levels, all of which are judged at both a state and national level.

Entries are judged on the merits of composition grammar, organization, and language skills ; content how well the theme has been addressed ; and voice. Entries are judged both regionally and nationally—the highest-level regional work is submitted for national consideration.

Writer's Digest Magazine

National winners are published in anthologies and Scholastic publications. Though technically not a contest, Stone Soup magazine publishes stories 2, words or less and poetry and book reviews by kids 13 and younger. Not all submissions will be published and kids are encouraged to read the Stone Soup archives to get a sense of what type of writing the editors prefer.
