Parent/guardian permission must be granted by filling out the student writing competition entry form. The supervising teacher or school facilitator should submit these forms electronically by the submission deadline as well. Final Deadline for online submissions via e-mail is Monday, October 16, 2023 by 11:55 p.m. All entrants are invited to attend the festival. Competition winners will be announced on Friday, October 27, 2023 and will be invited to read their original writing pieces on Saturday, November 4, 2023.
