The deadline for NJALL's 2019 Learner Writing Contest has been extended to February 15, so there is still time to get your entry in! There are five categories: fiction, non-fiction, memoir, poetry, and photography. Several winners will be invited to read their work and receive their awards at the annual NJALL conference on May 10th.
A full description of guidelines can be found here.
This is a great opportunity for students to get acclaim for the wonderful work that they do. And, as a further incentive, there are monetary prizes!
1st place: $100
2nd place: $50
3rd place: $25
We are also looking for reviewers, so if you are interested in supporting this contest, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We are particularly interested in having learners serve on the review committee.
All those submitting work will be notified of the decisions by March 8, 2019.
