Contest Rules

  • If you are in grades 3 through 8, you may enter an essay, a poem—or both!
  • Your entry may be typed or hand-written, but it must be neat and legible.
  • Your entry must have a separate title page. This title page must include your name, the title of your entry, your address, your phone number, your school, your grade and your teacher’s name.  This page is the only page that should contain your name, and it should be attached to the front of your entry.
  • Write your title again on the first page of the text of your entry, but do not put your name on any pages of the text of your entry. The title page and the text will be numbered and then separated to ensure impartial judging.  The judges will only see names after winners have been selected on the merits of their writing.
  • Proofread your entry and submit it.

 

**There will be separate judging for poems and essays.  If you do enter both contests, please be sure to put a separate title page on each entry.

 Entries must be postmarked by Friday, February 26, 2016
