NC ENGLISH TEACHERS ASSOCIATION WRITING AWARDS FOR STUDENTS


(Photo by Kathryn Byer)

THE DEADLINE FOR NCETA'S STUDENT WRITING AWARDS IS APRIL 15. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD TO THE MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS YOU KNOW. THE WADE EDWARDS FICTION CONTEST GIVES THE TOP 3 WINNERS VERY GENEROUS AWARD MONEY. THE ESSAY AND POETRY CONTESTS GIVE $250 FIRST PLACE AWARDS. LAST YEAR WE HAD NO STUDENTS SUBMITTING WORK FROM OUR FAR WESTERN COUNTIES, SO PLEASE ENCOURAGE TEACHERS TO ANNOUNCE THESE AWARDS AND ENCOURAGE ANY STUDENTS YOU KNOW TO ASK THEIR TEACHERS TO SPONSOR STUDENT WORK FROM THEIR SCHOOLS. IT'S IMPORTANT FOR OUR YOUNG PEOPLE TO SEE THAT GOOD WRITING IS REWARDED AND CONSIDERED IMPORTANT BY OUR STATE'S OFFICIAL ENGLISH TEACHER'S ORGANIZATION. THE LINK TO THE AWARDS INFORMATION IS BELOW.
