During the summer institute I not only grew as a teacher, but as a writer. Watching the demos helped reaffirm what I was doing in my classroom and gave me new ideas to try out.
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.
