High school sophomores and juniors are invited to submit one previously-unpublished poem to this contest.
Winners receive a scholarship to attend the Kenyon Review Young Writers workshop as well as publication in The Kenyon Review, one of the nation's most widely-read literary magazines.
There are many contests that charge fees, but for this resource, I have sought contests which mean to recognize and encourage young writers and do not charge reading or entry fees.
Of those listed that do charge a fee, some provide a publication subscription in return as they are trying to gain new readers; that seems fair and the publishers are up front about it.
There are monetary awards for the top two students: $500 and $250 respectively.
Students in grades 7-12 are invited to submit their creative work that showcases originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal vision or voice.The top portfolios are eligible to win special awards and scholarships.This contest is open to young women in grades 10 and 11.To recognize the outstanding writing achievement of high school students, this contest is open to students in grades 10-12.Students are asked to submit a collection of three poems to be judged by Bennington College's faculty and students.Eleventh-grade students may submit poems to this contest, judged by members of the Princeton University Creative Writing faculty.There are monetary prizes for the top three poems: 0 for first place, 0 for second place, and 0 for third place.Of all poems published each month, up to three will be declared contest winners, and the poets will receive a free copy of the publication as well as Teen Ink merchandise.High school students may submit one poem (of 20 lines or less) every 90 days., and runner-ups will be published in one of the topical anthologies (Of Faith & Inspiration, Of Love & Dedication, Inside of Me, My World).Additionally, a 0 scholarship will be awarded to the Poet of the Year; additionally, there will be four "Best of Issue" winners who will each win a 0 scholarship and four "Editor's Choice" selections who will each receive a 0 scholarship.
