Teen Playwright Contest

Thursday, October 31, 2019
All Locations
If you're an aspiring playwright, this is your chance to shine!  Submit an 8-15 minute full scene written in English and saved as a PDF by emailing contest@daytonmetrolibrary.org. Please number the pages of your script and include on your title page only: a cast list, your name, email, phone, school, and grade.  No musicals or children's plays will be accepted.  Your work must be your own original work, not be previously published or performed, and Dayton Metro Library reserves the right to not select a winner.  Winners in each category (Grades 7-8, 9-10, and 11-12) will be featured as a stage reading at the awards ceremony on December 14th.  Writers must be available for workshops and rehearsals.  Winners will be announced 11-16-19 at the StoryCon: Teen program at the Main Library.
