The West Virginia Young Writers Contest was developed to provide students with practice using the writing process.|
The goal of the program is to make sure that all schools and teachers are aware of this important opportunity for our West Virginia students to participate in celebrating writing and writers.
This contest supports the important literacy and writing initiative of preparing career and college ready students and fosters a love of expression characteristic of lifelong learners and writers.
