Prairie Lands gave me the opportunity to write and reflect about my writing and teaching. Through the demonstrations I was able to leave the institute with a variety of teaching strategies to help my students build their writing skills.
Since 2004, PLWP has served as a preliminary judging site for the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, a national, annual high school writing and art contest. Each year we recruit scorers for the Missouri Writing Region regional entries and national at-large scoring (if needed).
Recruitment for scorers occurs yearly in January.
