SLWP Writes! 2012 Announces Winners
05/01/12by: Tasha Whitton
The winners of the SLWP Writes! 2012 contest have been announced and their anthology is available on the SLWP Writes! Contest page.
The purpose of this contest was to promote and recognize young authors (grades 6-12) who demonstrated creative ingenuity through prose and poetry in the Southeast Louisiana region. In the spring of 2012, the SLWP received over 150 submissions to our Fourth Annual SLWP Writes!Contest. Writing Project teachers and writers read meticulously through submissions and selected 13 winners and 15 honorable mentions based on originality, clarity, language, style, and detail. All 28 award-winning pieces were forwarded to the Louisiana Writes! state contest, and the top 13 pieces were included in this anthology.
SLWP would like to give a special thanks to all the students who poured their hearts into their words, to the teachers who encouraged their students to submit to this contest, and to the judges who spent many long hours reading, deliberating, and determining the winning submissions.
The anthology is available at the SLWP Writes! webpage.
