The Scholastic Writing Contest is an opportunity for all students grades 7-12.  We hope you will encourage your student writers to develop and polish one or more of their works as a contest entry. Students may register for the contest at the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards website at They should click on How to Submit for complete instructions on how to upload their entry online to the contest headquarters and on how to print and complete the registration form to mail along with the entry fee to the Missouri Writing Region at Missouri Western State University. You will also find instructions to follow for students who qualify for a fee waiver.  By the way, at the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards homepage, if you open Exhibitions, you will find Online Galleries of national award winning entries.
