Many Writopia Lab writers from across the country enjoy submitting their works each year to the Scholastic Writing Awards, the nation’s most prestigious and longest-running writing competition for teens (grades 7 to 12). Whether or not awards are won, the deadlines and guidelines inspire our entire community to write at our highest level and, most importantly, to complete pieces.
We are happy to report that over the last three years, more Writopia writers have won regional and national Scholastic awards than any other group of kids in the country!
In the New York region, Writopia Lab has, since 2008, served as an outreach partner to the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers (the organization that runs the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards), publicizing the Scholastic Writing Awards, running free workshops to help young writers submit their work, and working one-on-one with students who are motivated to put extra effort into polishing their pieces.
