Short Story Contest

November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and SCC High Library is going to be running a short story contest to celebrate a month of writing. Most of us would be daunted by having to write 50,000 words in a month, but a short story can be as little as 1,000! So we are going to start out small, and if you get inspired let your writing muscles flex and keep writing until you have a novella or full-length novel. I guess instead of NaNoWriMo we are doing ShoStoWriMo (Short Story Writing Month)!

Contest Specifics
  • Can be an original work or a work of fanfiction
  • Story can be of any genre or topic, but must be school appropriate
  • Short story must be at least 1,000 words long (use the “Word Count” tool to keep track)
  • You will have the opportunity to have your short story posted on our website and have a copy added to the SCC High Library (optional)
  • You must submit your completed short story using the Google Form found at:
  • Submissions due by December 2, 2015
  • A team of SCC teachers will evaluate short stories and determine three winners
After being evaluated by a team of SCC teachers, the top three entries will receive a nano quadcopter drone. All entries will be posted on the SCC website and a hard-copy added to the library (student permission required).
