The Forward’s Youth Writing Contest deadline has been extended
The Forward’s Youth Writing Contest has already is inspiring middle and high school students across the country to reflect on the topic of freedom. Competing for a $180 prize in three age categories, our contestants have written short stories, poems and essays, some of which we have already published here. But, given that we are in the midst of Passover season with much of the world under lockdown, some of our young writers need a little more time to complete their entries. That’s why we’re extending our deadline to May 1. Please send your essays, stories and poems (1,000 words or less) about “What It Means To Be Free” to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find our contest guidelines here.
