This will be the second year that I am participating as a reader/judge in the nationwide Scholastic writing competition. I am able to participate through the California Writers Club – Writers of Kern branch.
The competition is for school aged children and the awards are in the form of scholarships.
There are many categories of both writing and art, and it is inspiring to see and enjoy the creativity of young people…many of whom I think will be amazing authors and artists to watch for in the future. Plus I love that this competition provides a focus for their creativity and potentially rewards it with a scholarship.
If you are interested in finding out more about this yearly competition – check out their website at https://www.artandwriting.org/ . And if you belong to a writers group – you might want to explore the options to be a reader/judge.
