I have amazing authors in my classes. And poets. And comic makers. And artists. And all around awesome kids.
The world doesn’t always stop to recognize them. That’s a shame!
I am looking for some cool contests that my students can enter.
Below are the contests that I know about:
Promising Young Writers: http://www.ncte.org/awards/student/pyw
New to me–Barron Prize: http://www.barronprize.org/
I am the chair of the Leslie Walker Memorial Essay Contest (Georgia only): http://kmwp.org/Portals/0/KMWP_LW_CONTEST_FLYER.pdf
I also subscribe to this awesome Writing Kid mailing list: www.fundsforwriters.com/writingkid.htm
I love River of Words: http://www.riverofwords.org/
What am I missing or forgetting about?
