The Betty Award: Prose & Poetry Contest for Youth

This month publishYOUth spoke with a representative from The Betty Award, a writing contest for children ages 8-12! As one of the few competitions for elementary and middle school students, The Betty Award grants cash prizes for written pieces below 1,000 words. Here we spoke with one of their team members about areas to focus on when entering by October 10th, the pieces that catch their eye, and the inspiration behind the contest!
