Write Outside Your Door is a free writing competition co-sponsored by the Missouri Botanical Garden and Gateway Writing Project that authentically integrates creative writing into the science and English language arts curriculums. Write Outside Your Door invites students from grades K - 12 to write about their experiences outside, with nature, and as stewards of the environment.
Students may submit stories, essays, or poems.
Stories and essays should be 1,000 words or less & poetry should be 3 - 30 lines
Entries will be judged on merits of composition (grammar and organization), content (how well the theme has been addressed), and voice (word choice and style).
Please provide student submission information below and attach a file of their writing.
