Young Writers (Front) Whitney Nettles (Back L-R) Hunter Schoolcraft, Adriona Arnold, Abigail White, Jaelyn Jett and Kirsta Dye

The West Virginia Young Writers Contest was developed to provide students with practice using the writing process.

The teachers at Arnoldsburg helped their students by coaching them through the pre-writing and drafting phase, proofreading and editing segment, and finally publishing and sharing their work with others.

Hunter Schoolcraft and Adriona Arnold were selected to represent the school at the county level. Hunter will represent Calhoun County at the state level.

The ability of students to express themselves in writing is a fundamental component of literacy in all disciplines. The twenty-first century demands that students possess a wide range of writing skills for academic and workplace success.

Counties and schools can promote literacy and writing through a pro-active approach by encouraging writing throughout the year in all classes; research to support informative and argumentative writing throughout the content areas; publish, display, and recognize student writing; conduct school Young Writers contests and send winning entries for judging in county contests; hold Young Writers recognition ceremonies.
