The art of writing may seem to be a quaint relic of an old-fashioned, less technology-based time but this is hardly the case. Although aspects of writing have changed, the ability to create something from your own mind, whether using pen or tablet remains unchanged.
Students may wonder why, in an age of texting, instant communication, auto-complete, and spell-check, they would even need to develop this talent. LOL’s and OMG’s hardly represent the ability to craft a story and release a possible Mark Twain’s inner genius.
Why should students participate in a writing competition?
Wise educators and sponsors realize that writing competitions measure a combination of many essential skills to set a student on the path to success. Academic, professional and even social skills may be enhanced over time with the right education.
As students become more adept at these skills, it is essential to recognize and reward progress but how do you track progress?
You can measure improvements in writing and communication skills through events which offer creative competition.
There should always be at least one winner, maybe more in different categories, as there are different types of writers in which you can celebrate excellence in originality, vocabulary, vision, overall improved performance and an award to the best speller!
An awards ceremony celebrates success in these areas and an event creates a memory for the winners as well as a goal for others to strive towards “next time!”
