Scholastic Writers Award 2015 Winners

Congratulations winners of the Scholastic Writers’ Award 2015!

 

Whether you’re writing a story, a poem, a speech or simply for pleasure – just write on! And that’s exactly what the participants of the Scholastic Writers’ Award 2015 did!

Did their stories make us laugh? Did they bring us on an incredible ride into the world they created? And did we almost spill our cup of hot coffee while reading through the gripping endings? 

The answer is a resounding YES to all of the above!

 

We have had the privilege to read through remarkable stories sent in by almost 2,000 participants this year! A total of 21 entries from both Group A and Group B categories have been identified by the judges to be recognized for their works.

We would like to extend a sincere thank you to all the students, teachers and schools for participating and especially for taking great leaps, trying new things and finding out what matters most to you! Your journey doesn’t end here, so, please WRITE ON!

“If there is a book that you want to read but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
-Toni Morrison
