All students in Grades 2-5 have received information during media classes on this year’s Young Authors' Contest. Students may submit an original short story (300-800 words) or poem (25-150 words) by December 21st, 2016 to be entered in the VES Young Authors' contest. Entries must be typed and submitted with a cover sheet. Electronic copies of entries should be saved because electronic copies of winning entries from VES will be sent to the Howard County contest in January. Cover sheets and detailed information about the rules of the Young Authors' Contest are available in the media center, and through the links attached below. If you have any questions regarding the Young Authors' Contest, please contact the media center.
