The overall winners of the NJCTE 2013 High School Writing Contest have been posted on our web-site. Check out the H.S. Writing Contest pages for details. Additional information about the winners of this year's contest and copies of the winning works will be available shortly. Congratulations to all of our young authors.
The Award Reception will take place on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Union Catholic Regional High School in Scotch Plains. BJ Ward will be the guest poet this year. The winning authors, their teachers, family and friends are invited to attend. All judges for the contest are also encouraged to come. A meeting of the writing contest committee will take place after the reception. Please RSVP to Jaime Alvarez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you were unable to meet this year's deadline, please consider submitting to the 2014 contest.
Consider making judging our contest part of your professional development program. We provide on-line training, and rubrics for judging our contest that encourage students to grow as writers. Judges also earn professional development credits. See the sub-link under our Writing Contest to learn more.
