QUILL AND INK ANNUAL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT
CREATIVE WRITING CONTEST
From poetry, story telling, to informative writing, CREATIVE WRITING activities offer students the opportunity to improve their creative skills and further develop their ability to communicate ideas. One of the main ways that students can get involved in these activities is through competitions. Entering into competitions is a great way for high schoolers to meet new people, win awards, become stronger writers, and ultimately stand out in the university admissions process.
The QUILL AND INK CREATIVE WRITING CONTESTS exists to develop deeper reflection on and appreciation for life. Since inception, the program has presented participants with a CREATIVE WRITING challenge that teaches the ability to think and write clearly, creatively, inspiringly and an understanding of the rights and responsibilities, and privileges of being a young citizen.
