Writing contests, such as the one I'm writing about in this post are fabulous ways to engage teens in using the skills they've learned in classrooms and turning them into projects that are not only constructive but esteem-boosting as well. With that in mind, I'm pleased to share this growth opportunity with both my parent and teen readers.
This student writing competition is a non-fiction, memoir, blogging, diary, letter, or essay-style contest for teenagers in high school. Quality entries from teens with authentic voices in their submissions are highly sought. The monthly winner receives several prizes as well as publication and public acknowledgment for their work.
