Creative writing contest for grades 4-12

In December, I posted about the 2011 Torrance Legacy Awards competition, open to students in grades 2-12. I wanted to offer this reminder that submissions are due by August 15, 2011.

There are two categories: creative writing and visual arts. The writing contest will accept short stories (limited to 1,250 words) or poems; the visual arts contest will accept any 2D or 3D art. For either contest, works must be an interpretation of one of the following themes:

  • Magic of adventure
  • Serendipity
  • Beyond the horizon
  • Unexpected answers
  • Nothing set in stone
  • Creating solutions

Winners will have their work published in a collection.

The contest is sponsored by the National Association for Gifted Children, among others; however, children do not need to be enrolled in a gifted program to enter.
