The goal of the KET Young Writers Contest is to encourage student writing and celebrate creativity. With this in mind, and based on your feedback, we’ve broadened the contest’s scope for 2020!

Have a fourth grader who loves crafting poetry, a fifth grader who creates amazing illustrated stories, or a high schooler with a passion for writing short stories? Now they can each submit their favorite pieces to the contest! Or even submit their best work into each category!

With additional writing options, students can stretch their creative minds even further.

We invite students in kindergarten through third grade to submit an illustrated story; students in fourth through fifth grades to submit an illustrated story, short story, and/or a poem; and students in sixth through twelfth grades to submit a short story and/or a poem. Winners are selected and prizes awarded.

The contest is open now. The deadline to enter is March 27th. Official rules and scoring rubrics are now available. We can’t wait to read your pieces!
