The State of Maryland Literacy Association (SOMLA) Young Authors’ Contest is underway, and this year it includes grades 1-5. This is an opportunity for children to showcase their writing by submitting a creative short story or poem (or one of each!). The contest rules and cover sheets will be sent home in Friday Folders. The information will also be available soon on the TRES website.
All participants will receive a certificate, will have their work “published” in our TRES Young Authors’ anthology and will be invited to a special “authors’ tea” in the spring. The winning entry in each category will move on the the Howard County level of the competition. Please encourage your child to participate and feel free to email me with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Entries are due by December 2.
