Scholastics Arts and Writing Competition (Critical Essay and Humor Submissions)



I decided to combine these two categories because the deadline is approaching.


“Writing that uses comedic forms such as jokes, satire, farce, irony, parody, absurdity,  comedic anecdote, etc.”

Word Limit: 500–3,000 words

Critical Essay

“Writing intended to inform or convince a reader about a specific idea or topic, such as art or media reviews, persuasive essays, opinion essays, etc.” You must cite your sources. Don’t worry footnotes won’t be considered part of your word count. 

Word Limit: 500–3,000 words.

Deadline: December 5, 2018, for New Jersey residents. Check for more information.

Prize: Gold, Silver, and Bronze keys and medals, your work published, and lots of bragging writes!
