2015 NFB WRITERS DIVISION WRITING CONTEST
The annual youth and adult writing contests
sponsored by the NFB Writers Division will open
January 1st and close April 1st.
NEW THIS YEAR: 2015, being the Federations 75th
birthday, the contest will for the first time
ever, have a required theme. All submissions will
need to somehow incorporate the theme of 75. It
does not have to be necessarily about the
anniversary of NFB. It could just be the number
75, or perhaps the diamond anniversary, or 75
steps to your destination, or even 75 balloons.
Thinking of past entries, 75 aliens would work.
Seriously, let your imagination take over. Write
the piece you want, just remember to include the
theme of 75; this is inspired by the 75 years of
the great work that has been happening within,
and because of the National Federation of the Blind.
Adult contests, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and
stories for youth are open to all entrants eighteen and over.
The youth writing contest, poetry and fiction,
are to promote Braille literacy and excellence in
writing. The contest is divided into three
groups, determined by grade level elementary, middle, and high school.
Prizes for contest winners range up to $100 for
adult categories, and up to $30 for youth.
All contest winners will be announced the first
week in July, at the Writers Division business
meeting during the NFB national convention, held
in Orlando, Florida. In addition, a list of
winners will appear on our website,
All winners from both, the adult and youth
contests will be considered for publication in
our Divisions magazine, Slate & Style.
For additional contest details and submission guidelines, go to our website,
David Andrews and long white cane Harry.
