Governor’s School introduces Govie Writing Awards

Statewide writing contest for students

Submission deadline: Friday, March 15, 2019

The Govie Writing Awards is a new, state-wide contest for South Carolina students in grades 6-12. Sponsored by the Creative Writing Department at the S.C. Governor’s School for the Arts & Humanities, the awards are named for the department’s founding faculty members—Jan Bailey and George Singleton—and recognize student works in fiction and poetry. Prize winners will receive a gift card from a local indie bookstore. Teachers of the winning students will also be recognized.

Guidelines and more are here. Good luck!
