Alpha Textbooks is bringing back its annual short story contest, for youth across Ontario.
Special to 2014, we’ve added a middle school category. That means we will be running two competitions, one for high schoolers and another for the up-and-coming teens in middle school.
Right now, we’re looking for teachers who would like to participate as a short story judge. We also ask permission to promote their participation on the contest website, in addition to requesting that they kindly accept a modest gift of store credit as a thank-you.
For more details about the contest, or information on your role as a judge, view this PDF – Call For Teachers – Alpha Short Story Contest 2014 (UPDATED August 5, 2014) – and please share it with other teachers!
We support reading and writing, and we look forward to launching the contest soon!
