2020 WV Young Writers

2020 Winners of the WV Young Writers Contest

Since 1984 the WV Young Writers Contest has been an opportunity for young writers to have their work showcased across the state. It encourages young writers in grades 1-12 to utilize their best skills in a variety of prose genres.

Our school-based coordinators and county-level judges carefully considered our students’ entries before deciding on the winners.

Jefferson County Schools acknowledges our teachers and school leaders who generously shared time and talent with our students over the course of the contest. 

We are especially proud of the talent and skill these authors have brought to the craft of storytelling.  Members of the Jefferson County Board of Education will recognize the winners during a special ceremony later this spring.  Winners and their families will also be invited to attend the Young Writers Day celebration at the University of Charleston on May 8, 2020.
