Writing Contest =
Hiram College announces the first annual Emerging Writers Nonfiction Contest for high school students. The contest is open to current 10th and 11th grade students, and all entries must be received by midnight on Jan. 15, 2015.

Participants are asked to submit work that addresses the contest theme of “In the World.” Essays should be reflective, investigative, immersive or meditative, and the theme may be addressed broadly and creatively. Submitted work should combine a foundation in facts with nuanced use of language and detail.

Cash prizes of $100-$300 will be awarded for first, second and third place. Honorable mentions will be awarded at the contest’s discretion and include no cash prize.
