Write Out Loud Student Award Ceremony
February 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Students in grades 1 through 8 in Corridor area districts are invited to submit writing to One Book Two Book! Those submissions are evaluated by a team at ACT in Iowa City. Grade-level winners will be selected in two categories:
- The Write Stuff, which is judged based on language, clarity, structure, and emotional impact.
- From the Heart, judged based on creativity, passion, and expressiveness.
Recognized students will be invited to read their winning submissions at “Write Out Loud,” a special award ceremony Sunday, February 25, at 1 p.m. in Macbride Auditorium, on the campus of the University of Iowa. In addition, a percentage of all students whose submissions were deemed to be of outstanding quality also will be honored with a “certificate of distinction.” All recognized students will receive certificates and prizes at the event. The grade-level prize winners will have their work published in a booklet available at the festival.
