The Ann Arbor District Library is excited to host its 28th annual “It’s All Write!” Teen Writing Contest in Spring 2020! Young Adult authors take part as judges each year, who then read and select the winning stories. Stories are judged in three different categories: Grades 6-8, Grades 9 & 10, and Grades 11 & 12. The top three writers in each age group receive fabulous prizes. This is an ever-growing, international contest. Winners will be announced at our Teen Writing Festival on May 9, 2020 from 1-3pm at the Downtown Library.
Kids in grades 3-5 can also enter AADL's WriteOn! short story writing contest, which runs January 13 through February 10. More details here.
