The Southeast Wisconsin Scholastic Writing competition was open to students in grades 7-12 from Kenosha, Racine, and Walworth counties. Students’ entries were judged blindly by at least three jurors, and tabulated to award three levels of recognition: the Gold Key, which is the highest award, followed by Silver Key and Honorable Mention awards. Entries receiving Gold Keys advanced to New York for national judging by professional writers, editors, publishers, and educators.
