Student Winners Announced for Literary Competition

Student Winners Announced for Literary Competition

The votes are in, and we have our winners for the 2013 Student Literary Competition at Brookhaven College!

The Student Literary Competition is a national competition made possible by the League for Innovation. The competition allows community college students around the country to submit creative writing pieces to their schools within the categories of essay, poetry, fiction and one-act play. The Dallas County Community College District is one of 19 community colleges around the country which is invited to participate annually.

The first-place winners in each category will move on to the districtwide competition and will be judged by the end of the month with a chance to compete nationally. Monetary prizes of $500, $200 and $100 are then awarded to first, second and third place national winners respectively.

Congratulations to all the winners, and good luck at district!
