“We are always in need of parent volunteers” and RAA is seeking a music co-coordinator for next year. Interested persons may contact Call at 934-3260 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to snow days, the deadline has been extended by one additional week to Friday, March 7.
There are three categories – fiction, poetry and essays. Each category is divided into a middle school and high school section for judging. A student can submit one piece of writing in the fiction and essay categories and two in the poetry category, according to Hartz. A student may enter more than one category.
Entries must be original and not previously published or recognized through some other contest. Students can find rules and forms at sites.google.com/site/yaswriting/.
The coordinator observes, “We went to an online-only submission process for this year since all Batesville Community School Corp. and St. Louis students in the eligible grades are covered by 1:1 computing initiatives.”
“My advice would be to pick a piece of writing that they are proud of, have a friend or family member read over it for any revision or proofreading ideas, and then send it in according to the directions on the contest Web site.”
Judges come from one of two backgrounds: “They either have an English degree with professional writing/teaching/editing experience, or they are published writers (not surprisingly, there is some overlap) ...” Persons interested in judging may contact Hartz at email@example.com.
