Hosted by Creative Communication, this competition is aimed at the promotion of writing, teaching and appreciation of student writing. The intent of their student writing contests is to motivate student writers. The top entries are subsequently published to record the creative insights of today's student writers.
This is a poetry contest that strives to bring recognition to poets both young and old. In addition to the winning poems, other poems of high merit are accepted to be published in a hard bound anthology. There is no entry fee and no required purchase in order to become published.
Being published in the Creative Communication anthology looks great on college applications. The Top Ten Winners are selected for each contest and receive a free copy of the anthology, a $25 USD award, and special recognition in the book.
There is no requirement for a student to purchase an anthology; however, if a student wishes to purchase one, it is made available at an affordable price. Each year Creative Communication awards thousands in cash and prizes to students and schools.
