Young Author's Contest

Starting November 22, 2021 - Ending December 22, 2021

The 2021-22 Young Authors' Contest (YAC) is underway! YAC is an annual contest sponsored by the State of Maryland Literacy Association (SoMLA) and promoted via Frederick County Reading Council and Frederick County Public Schools. Students in grades 1-5 can submit a poem, a short story, or both for a chance to win at the school level and then move onto the county competition. This is a great opportunity for students' creative writing skills to shine! All entries are due by December 10, 2021. For all of the details and requirements please view 2021 Elementary YAC Slides.
