Schools throughout Wyoming are encouraged to participate in the Young Authors Contest. This state-wide writing competition is offered for all grades, K-12 in public, private or homeschool. Entries include: poems, non-fiction, fiction, and graphic novels. The Young Authors Contest provides students the opportunity to write for enjoyment and to share their writing.
The writers are recognized in their building and school district. The winning entries at local districts are then sent to the State Young Authors Contest by March 8, 2024. Then, the winning entries and authors are recognized at a State Young Authors Celebration May 4, 2024 in Casper or a virtual celebration.
Please print the flyers and distribute in your school, district, and community.
