Competition Exploring the Impact of Writing on the World

From Alexander Hamilton to Ida B. Wells, writers and their works have had a huge impact on how people see the world. The American Writers Museum is inviting teachers to submit entries from their students in the museum’s second annual OnWord Student Writing Competition. Students’ work should be based on this prompt: Using writing as a catalyst to create change in the world, would you empower, inspire, or disrupt? Students can use any form of writing (essay, short story, poem, play, song) to explore the change they want to see in the world. The competition has three categories, with two winners in each grade range: Elementary(Grades 3–5): two winners will each receive $500; Middle School (Grades 6–8): two winners will each receive $1,000; and High School (Grades 9–12): two winners will each receive $2,000. The six winners will also be filmed reading their work aloud, and the videos will air during OnWord 2021, the museum’s annual benefit in August 2021.

Deadline: June 15, 2021, for submissions; winners will be notified by July 15, 2021
