To any High School artists and writers following me:

Check out this contest! It’s seriously so much fun, and I am so glad I participated in it for two years of High School. It’s a great opportunity to see your work recognized—whether it’s only regionally or you make it all the way to nationals!

In high school, people like Andy Warhol, Joyce Carol Oates, and Sylvia Plath received awards through this program! I felt so honored to win my national award from Scholastic alongside names like those.

Another great perk? You have the chance to win scholarships! I received a $1000 for my schooling during my senior year of high school and my English teacher received $200 for the English department, which was wonderful. 

Seriously, it’s a great program. So check it out and consider entering! What have you got to lose?

Inbox me if you have any questions about it!
