Middle School Writers Invited to Compete in Youth Ink 2020


    The Orinda Junior Women’s Club is sponsoring Youth Ink 2020, the annual creative writing contest open to middle school students who live in or attend school in Orinda. This year’s writing prompt is “The Gift,” though as in previous years, entrants do not have to adhere to the prompt; imagination and creativity are encouraged.
    Representatives for the club say they hope the contest gives children the opportunity to experience the literary arts and enjoy the creative writing process.
    Awards for Youth Ink 2020 will be presented at a ceremony in late April, with the following cash prizes: $250 for first place, $125 for second place and $75 for third place. Gift certificates for 10 honorable mentions also will be presented.
    Youth Ink submissions will be accepted via email Monday, Dec. 2, through Friday, Feb. 28 and must be received during that time in order to be considered for an award. Full entry details can be found on the Youth Ink 2020 submission forms, available through Orinda Intermediate School, several local private middle schools, the Orinda Public Library, and online beginning Dec. 2 at www.orindajuniors.org.
