WITESOL Writing and Art Contest 2016 – 2017
Theme: What does the world need more of?
This year’s theme tackles a very important question, and students have a lot of options when it comes to giving an answer. Students can take an environmental spin or explore social avenues for a better world. Teachers can encourage thoughtfulness and creativity to approach this theme any way they see fit.
WITESOL will be accepting submissions from December 16, 2016 until February 17, 2017. Any Wisconsin teacher who is a WITESOL member can enter up to 3 ELL entries per category. Student work from the 2016-2017 school year is eligible. We look forward to viewing artwork and reading personal essays and poems from students of all ages.
