Tell a story, teacher

What’s the Story? asks SRA/McGraw-Hill, which is conducting a writing contest for teachers.

SRA is seeking creative, original, and imaginative stories and poems (fiction and nonfiction) written for students in Grades Pre-K–6—anything you think your own students would enjoy reading.

Story winners will receive a cash prize of $1,000. Poem winners will receive a cash prize of $500.

Winning stories will be published in a Pre-K-6 reading and language arts curriculum.

There are a number of teacher-bloggers who are first-rate writers.

  1. Writers beware: According to the official contest rules, winners lose all rights to their stories and poems. The publisher can do whatever it wants with the winning works, forever, without further compensating the writers. That’s a pretty standard arrangement for work-for-hire copywriting, but I doubt it’s what most people expect from a contest promising to make them a “published author.”
