2019 Writing & Art Challenge

Published: Dec 19, 2018 | Category: Uncategorized

The Writing and Art Challenge was created by the MCWC Youth Advisory Committee as an avenue for teens to start talking about dating & relationships. It is meant to create a safe environment to explore and discuss the impacts (both positive and negative) of common dynamics found in these experiences. The Writing and Art Challenge is open to all middle school, high school & college students who reside in Montgomery County. This includes students attending public school, private school, alternative education, homeschool, etc. Participants may enter a maximum of one submission in each category(writing/art).

All works are evaluated by a blind judging process, by a group of volunteer community members, including high school students and adults. All works will be judged on the following criteria:

  • Theme
  • Originality/ Creativity
  • Technical Skill
