Watch for our upcoming 8th annual . . .
2013/2014 National Student Poetry Contest and
2013/2014 National Student Short-Story Contest
(for Canadian students in kindergarten through grade twelve)
November 22nd, 2013 (post-marked mail)
November 29th, 2013 (e-mails or faxes)
Each fall we hold two contests, which are open to Canadian students in kindergarten through grade twelve. Over $10,000 is awarded in cash prizes to schools and students who participate!
There is no entry fee and no obligation to purchase anything.
Educators may wish to use one or both of these contests as a project in coordination with their English curriculum or students may enter on their own (though school information must be provided so we can verify they are a student and keep the contest fair). Information packages, including entry forms, are sent to schools across the country in September. Educators may directly request a copy of this information package or a complimentary copy of one of our collections from a previous contest by emailing or calling us to provide the information to the left.
The top group of entrants in each contest (45% or less) will be published in an inexpensive, soft-cover, keepsake collection to be released in early June of each year. Schools that send in at least five entries will automatically receive one free copy of any collection containing their student(s) work. We gave away more than $10,000 worth of these books to schools in our last contest!
