For grades 7-12. Try your hand at our fantastic contest for teens who write. This year’s contest focuses on writing that is inspired by Michael Nicholl Yahgulanaas’s book Flight of the Hummingbird, which challenges each of us to do our part, bit by bit, to make the world a better place.

The contest runs from January 2 to February 27, 2020. Enter your original poem, short story, or something in our creative writing category. Entries have a limit of 1,500 words; works that surpass the word count may be disqualified.

If your entry is selected by the judging panel, you will win a gift certificate to a local book store of your choice.
