The National Young Writers Poetry contest has been a bigger success than we expected, with entries from teachers and students across the country.
Almost 300 submissions is staggering for a first-time national contest, so thank you-thank you-thank you to the principals and superintendents that forwarded the emails to ELA department leads.
Notification emails are going out today with postal notifications to those without computer access to follow.
If you submitted an entry...watch your email (spam and junk folders, too) and check your mail carefully!
And remember, if you weren't selected this time, please continue to keep a close eye on us. Mrs. Lewis is slowly switching things around to incorporate more contests and writing opportunities for children and young adults.
