I'm delighted to have participated again as a judge for the Scholastic Writing Awards. Each year, this national program honors teens in grades 7 - 12 in several categories of writing. Students who receive awards may be eligible for scholarships (see general information). Congratulations to everyone who entered! It was a pleasure reading your work.

Writing can be a part of your teen's life throughout the year. There are many writing programs available for kids to hone their skills and pursue their passion. A great place to consider is the national organization, Writopia Lab. Locally there are branches in New York City, Brooklyn, Westchester, Rockland County and New Jersey.
