Student authors to be honored Saturday

All of the 2017 winners.

Maybe the next Hemingway or J.K Rowling will be on stage at the Seventh Annual La Plume Young Writers’ Contest awards ceremony which is Saturday, December 1.

The public is invited from 5-7 pm at the Miami Conservatory of Music Recital Hall at 2911 Grand Avenue, Coconut Grove, FL (at the Mayfair Center). 

The event is free. More than 120 students from grades 3-12 who attend Miami Dade County schools wrote short stories based on any topic they desired.

The Grand Prize Winner in each level is given a $150 to $350 cash prize and has the story published. Cash and other prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners for each level (Elementary, Middle and High School). During the next academic year, all the winners and finalists are offered free Creative Writing Workshops conducted by a published author.
