The Delaware Valley Fairness Project sponsors a Student Writing Program to encourage middle school and high school students to tap into their critical thinking or creative inspiration. Students in grades 6-8 or in grades 9-12 are invited to submit original works of Commentary of Creativity for a chance to earn $50-$100 gift cards redeemable for groceries or clothing (student’s choice) and to have their submissions published on our website. Commentary submissions are to reflect original student thought about a current events issue not to exceed 500 words. Creative submissions may be in any literary form. If prose, they should not exceed 500 words; if poetry, they should not exceed 24 lines.
Students must submit their pieces using the Student Writing Submissions form on this website. Every submission will be authenticated with the author’s school prior to publication and the awarding of gift cards.
The deadlines for submission of entries for the remainder of this school-year are: February 22, March 22 and April 26, 2017
