The Creative Writing Contest is open for students in grades 5 through 12. The contest is conducted from September -November. Composition Divisions are 5th-6th Grade; 7th-8th Grade; and 9th-12th Grade. Students write either prose or poetry with winners chosen for each category and division. Top papers are organized into a booklet and Exemplary and Honorable Mention recipients receive a copy.
This year we are trying a new approach for the topic! Students will be given an image, title and caption to create their own story. The image and caption are meant to be creative writing "starters" and then it is up to the students to complete the tale using their creativity and imagination.
