To foster the development of writing skills and provide a writing platform for young minds, Talentnook has launched another writing competition for students in Grades 3 to 5.
SAN RAMON, CA, UNITED STATES, May 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Even in a year of pandemic, when travel was somewhat limited, college students across the United States brought out their creative writing skills with the Talentnook Superhero Story Writing Contest. The writing competition was held to recognize and encourage the talents of college students and invited all college students to participate.
The competition allowed students to bring out their inner fiction writer, practice creative writing, and be recognized for their talents by more than their teacher’s grade level.
Beginning in October 2020, college students (Grades 6-8) were invited to submit their applications under one of two categories: in the form of a narrative story or a graphic story ( comic book style). Submissions should be original works of no more than 2000 words (for narrative story style) and no more than 8 pages (for comic book graphic story style).
We have received hundreds of applications from college students across the United States. Applications for the Superhero Story Writing Contest were reviewed using a rubric scale by a panel of Talentnook Educators and writing experts. The nominations were judged by Ms. Eileen Mammen, author of children’s books, educator and creator of the Talentnook Writing Academy with over 15 years of experience mentoring students in the English language arts
The winners were announced at a virtual awards ceremony on April 29, 2021. This year, the winners were invited to read excerpts from their work and talk about what inspired their imaginations when they attempted invited to the writing contest, as part of an awards video.
