What is the Young Writer's Award?

Our Young Writers’ Award is a short-story competition which aims to find the most talented young author in the DFW metroplex. Students between the ages of 5 and 14 are invited to write a short story of no more than 500 words on a given theme, to be judged by a top children’s author. Previous judges have included Lauren Child, award-winning author of the ‘Charlie and Lola’ books, and Cressida Cowell, best-selling author of the popular ‘How to Train your Dragon’ books. What’s more, the child in first place wins a trophy, a Kindle Fire HD, and $500 worth of books for their school, as well as the honor of having their story published online.

Whether your students are gifted and talented or lacking in motivation, our competition is designed to build creative writing skills and inspire children to develop a love of writing. This workshop will get your children started on the planning process for a piece of expository writing and has been carefully crafted to meet TEKS standards, and to prepare students for upcoming STAAR tests in grades 4 and 7!
