Literature -- Expressing your own thoughts and ideas through the use of words. Authors submit a single literary work, handwritten or typed, using grade-appropriate grammar, punctuation and spelling. Each entry should be a single piece of literature; collections of literary work are not accepted.

  • Not exceed 2,000 words.


The entry may:

  • Be typed by another person as long as the original work or a copy of the original work is attached.
