Prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each category with honorable mentions as well. 

The debut reception will be April 19, 2016 at Reformation Lutheran Church at 3:30 pm.  Music and refreshments will be provided. 

Don't miss an opportunity to be published in high school!  The contest is open to all 9th - 12th grade students from Alexander County, regardless of public, private, boarding, or home school status.

Short story and prose pieces must be emailed to Beth Duncan at bduncan@alexander.k12.nc.us . Prose works cannot be more than 500 words.  Poetry can be no more than 42 lines counting the title.

Artworks should be dropped by Robbin Isenhour Stewart's classroom if you are an Alexander Central student or brought by the library in Taylorsville to Mel Hager if homeschooled or attend another school.

Hope to see your work in the 2016 Alexander Muse!
