Young Author's Contest

Young Author's Contest (YAC)

The 2020-21 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. Each year, students at New Market Elementary School are encouraged to participate in the SoMLA Young Authors' Contest. Students in grades 1-5 can submit a poem or a short story for a chance to win. This is a great opportunity for students' creative writing skills to shine!  All entries are due to Angie Tortolani, angela.tortolani@fcps.org  by December 4, 2020.
