Texas Students Short Story Contest Last Days to Enter
AUSTIN, TX – On August 15, 2017, a new short story writing contest for students, grades 6-12, began accepting entries. The contest is sponsored by Texas Authors Institute of History, the only museum in the country that is dedicated to preserving the works of Texas authors, both past and present. Part of the mission of the museum is to develop and encourage future authors of Texas. Students can find the official rules and entry form at http://ShortStory.TexasAuthors.Institute
The short story contest is open to any student, grades 6-12, whether in public, private or homeschools. Each grade will have winners by region based on the first two numbers of their zip code: 75, 76,77, etc. Then there will be statewide winners. A number of prizes will be awarded.
“We celebrate the creative minds of the younger generation,” said B. Alan Bourgeois, founder, and director of Texas Authors Institute. “We know they are the future authors who will push the boundaries of great works and we are thrilled to collaborate with the schools and to encourage the students to grow into great writers that the world can recognize and honor.”
While Texas Authors Institute has three major sponsors, EBG247.com, Gatekeeper Press and DEAR Texas, Inc., they welcome other businesses to join them in promoting literacy and education both locally and statewide. Interested sponsors can reach the Institute at info@TexasAuthors.Instittue to learn how they can participate.
