While many people think that writing skills are just for English class, we know good verbal expression is important in every field. We want to celebrate student and teacher writing, regardless of whether it comes from science, social studies, health, and yes, even math. Some of the most interesting and most creative writing comes out from disciplines other than English Language Arts.
The Celebrating Words annual writing contest includes students and teachers from all levels of public schooling who enjoy developing and submitting their unique and innovative prose and poetry. The judges are teachers or writers who volunteer their time and expertise to review the submissions and decide which selections will be awarded in the particular category. All the participants receive a complimentary copy of Celebrating Words, and the winners also receive a bookstore gift certificate.
The categories include poetry and prose from:
- Grade 1 - 3
- Grade 4 - 6
- Junior High School
- Senior High School
- Teacher/Student Teacher
