Weekly Reader’s Student Publishing Contest invites students in grades 3-12 to enter their best non-fiction writing and publications  for a chance to win a SMART Interactive Whiteboard for their classroom, cash prizes, and a trip to Washington, DC. The contest rewards young people for their compelling, true stories told through good reporting and writing. All essays, memoirs, feature stories, and news articles will be considered. Weekly Reader has opened the contest to digital-only publications encouraging submissions of websites, blogs, newspapers, or other nonfiction publications that only appear online.

There is no entry fee. Submission deadline is March 18, 2011. No late entries will be accepted.
