The stories must be between 500 words and 2000 words long. No longer. No shorter. If you use Word, press "Review" to count the words. Stories must be submitted in a Word or a PDF document. No google docs. You, the youth, must be the original author, and not assisted by AI.
Send us a question if you are thinking of something unusual. Right now we are open to drawing, painting, sculpting, and all 3D compositions. Dimensions should not exceed a half metre cubed. Sorry, no video or films this year.
Why yes, we do! Thank you for asking. This will be published for a general audience in the newspaper. No excessive or graphic violence, no sex scenes even if romantic. If your character needs to curse, be creative, you nerk! Have fun with it. This should be a positive, hopeful story, even if there are tense, dramatic moments in it.
