Area Language Arts Teachers Score Contest Entries

Thirty-0ne educators from western Missouri met on Saturday, January 16 at Missouri Western where they scored 220 Missouri Writing Region 2010 contest entries (and approximately 1,500 at-large submissions) submitted by students in grades 7-12 in the categories of personal essay/memoir, poetry, dramatic script, persuasive writing, journalism, humor, science fiction/fantasy, short story, short short story, and general writing portfolio (seniors only). We've posted pictures at http://picasaweb.google.com/priarielands/ScholasticScoringSession# (be sure to add the number sign to the end of the address. Blogger won't do it.)

The top-scoring pieces from this round will be judged in Columbia, MO on January 23 to contend for state honors. Our state winners and their teachers will be honored at the 2010 Write-to-Learn Conference in Osage Beach, MO on Friday, February 26.
