Hello Missouri Teachers,
The 2017 Scholastic Writing Awards are now open. The Missouri region anticipates more than 1,000 entries from students in grades 7-12. With eleven categories—from flash fiction to critical essay—students can submit writing in the genre of choice. The Scholastic Writing Awards are a national competition, and Gold Key winners from Missouri (and Kansas counties near Kansas City) advance to the next level.
Gold Key, Silver Key, and Honorable Mention awards are distributed in each category, and winners are invited to the annual Scholastic Writing Awards Ceremony at Tan-Tar-A Resort in Osage Beach, MO in February.
