Orinda Junior Women’s Club Announces Youth Ink 2021


    The Orinda Junior Women’s Club’s (Orinda Juniors) annual creative writing contest, Youth Ink 2021, will once again be open to all middle school students who live in or attend school in Orinda.
    The Youth Ink 2021 prompt this year is “Hope.” Entrants, however, do not have to adhere explicitly to the prompt since imagination and creativity are encouraged. Orinda Juniors Board Member Erika Rosenberg, who oversees the contest with fellow Board Member Sara Shukairy, hopes the contest will continue to give young adolescents the opportunity to experience the literary arts and enjoy the creative writing process.
    Cash prizes of $250 for first place, $125 for second place, $75 for third place and gift certificates for 10 honorable mentions will be awarded. Youth Ink 2021 submissions will be accepted via email from Tuesday, Dec. 1 until Friday, Feb. 26, 2021, in order to be considered for an award. Full entry details will be on the Youth Ink 2021 submission forms, available through Orinda Intermediate School, several local private middle schools, the Orinda Public Library and online at www.orindajuniors.org.
