Youth Creative Writing Contest:



Entries accepted until April 17, 2020

The 3rd annual Washington County Youth Creating Contest theme will be “On the Trail.” This theme can be interpreted in either the literal sense (on an actual trail doing a favorite hike or exploring nature) or in a figurative sense (“on the trail” accomplishing a dream or a goal). Students entering the contest may submit work in two categories, poetry (30 lines or fewer) and personal essay (300 words or fewer) describing a way they or someone they know is “On the Trail.”

We will have four age divisions - Division 1, 1st-3rd grade, Division 2, 4th-6th grade, Division 3, 7th-9th grade, and Division 4, 10th-12th grade. Each student can submit one entry per category. Submissions will be open until April 17, 2020. There will be 1st-3rd place winners in each division for each category. Winners receive cash prizes as well as merchandise donated by the contest’s sponsors. The awards ceremony will be Friday May 15, 2020 at 6 p.m. at Washington City’s Highland Park.

As promised, here is the link to the google form to enter the contest:

google science

Google has a science fair! A good idea can come from anyone, anywhere. If you’re between 13-18, we’d love for you to join us and share your best idea using science, technology, engineering, and math. It doesn’t matter if you use pen and paper or a full-scale lab; it’s all about the idea and the thinking behind it---no matter how big or small.
