Authors of Class Writing Competition

Children’s Writing Competition

due: Saturday, April 15, 2017

The Authors of Class Writing Competition, open to Grades K–8, encourages teams of students to use their reading, writing, and artistic skills to create books. Under the guidance of a project coordinator (classroom teacher, parent, student teacher, teacher’s aide), children work in teams to write and illustrate their own books. This creative process helps provide a natural environment to practice editing, teamwork, and the communication skills necessary for future success. All students involved get a sense of pride and accomplishment from submitting the team project.
