Scholastic Writing Awards 2013

The Scholastic Writing Awards are back!

Every year, Scholastic India holds a nation-wide fiction writing competition for students, in a quest for the country’s finest young wordsmiths. The competition encourages children to employ their writing skills and creativity to craft stories fit for publication.

Since 2007, Scholastic has been publishing the best entries from each year in a special anthology titled For Kids By Kids: The Best of the Scholastic Writing Awards.

This year, students are invited to write a short story based on any one of the three themes listed below:

Group 1 (Classes 4-6) – Journey

The Secret Diary


Group 2 (Classes 5-9)  – Rewind

Starting line – And They Lived Happily After


The three prize-winning stories from each group along with the runners-up will be featured in the seventh edition of For Kids By Kids.

The last date for entries is 15 March 2013.
