Winners of the 2016 Arts and Humanities Commission Writing Contest


The Arts and Humanities Commission sponsored an annual Writing Contest open to all youth and adults with an interest in writing. Its purpose is to encourage and reward excellence in written communication skills. Entries were judged on originality, content, creativity, relevancy, structure and the intangible: how the work touches the reader.  

One entry allowed per participant per category and all works are presented anonymously for judging.
