2017 NCTE Program to Recognize Excellence in Student Literary Magazines
The Executive Committee of the National Council of Teachers of English has established the Program to Recognize Excellence in Student Literary Magazines in senior high, junior high, and middle schools throughout the United States, the District of Columbia, the Virgin Islands, Canada, and American schools abroad.

The program is intended as a means of recognition for students, teachers, and schools producing excellent literary magazines; as an inducement for improving the quality of such magazines; and as encouragement for all schools to develop literary magazines, seeking excellence in writing and school-wide participation in production.

Magazines are evaluated and ranked; each entry is reviewed and scored by two judges working independently.

The judges will be English teachers at the middle, secondary, or college level. Judges will not be permitted to rate magazines from their own schools. Ratings by state judges are subject to review by PRESLM's Advisory Committee, which also makes final selection of the program's Highest Award winners.

The student literary magazine program is open to all secondary schools throughout the United States, Canada, and the Virgin Islands, as well as to American schools abroad. If a school publishes multiple issues of its magazine, only one issue may be submitted to PRESLM. Two or more schools may not join to submit one entry. District-wide magazines produced by student staff are eligible if such magazines are developed in a district that does not have individual school literary magazines.

Note: The following types of magazines are not eligible: K–elementary magazines and other kinds of publications, e.g., newspapers, and yearbooks.

Evidence of plagiarism will disqualify a magazine.

Deadline: July 1, 2017
NOTE: An entry fee of $25 to cover administrative costs is requested to enter a magazine. However, if you are applying for the first time this year, we will waive the fee.
