Students in Grades 2nd through 5th are invited to participate in the State of Maryland Literacy Association SoMLA - Young Authors' Writing Contest. In this writing contest, students submit an original poem or short story or both. Each writing entry requires it own cover sheet. Parents, students, and homeroom teacher are required to sign the cover sheet. Student work must be typed on the computer and saved. If a student does not have access to a computer to type their entry please let Natalie Miskimins' MWES Reading Specialist know to arrange for the student to type their entry. The cover sheet and original writing entry is due by or before Friday, December 14, 2018. Students can pick-up forms for the writing contest from their classroom teacher, off of Mrs. Miskimins’ Reading Board, or on MWES website. All cover sheets and original work are to be turned into Mrs. Miskimins’ Reading Board where their are folders for each grade level to turn in writing contest submissions. Please reach out to Natalie Miskimins’ MWES Reading Specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org if any questions! Happy Writing!!
