OHSWEKEN – Do you like to write, or express yourself in words?
An up and coming writing competition for Indigenous youth is the James Bartleman Aboriginal Youth Creative Writing Award (JBAYCWA), which will be accepting submissions until May 31.
Parameters for the competition include that all applicants be under the age of 18 and all submissions must celebrate Indigenous culture. The competition will select six individuals to receive a $2,500 award and to forever be a piece of the legacy of the Honourable James Bartleman, the first Aboriginal Lieutenant Governor of Ontario.
Now, here’s where this opportunity gets better.
Here at the Two Row Times we know that writing truly is a talent and we would love to help showcase the young writers in our community. So, we are asking any and all applicants for the JBAYCWA to send Chezney or Jayson your submissions for a chance to be featured in our paper.
Make sure to include your byline and a title for your story.
Get creative and submit right away!
