Submit to the High School Writing Contest

To Submit to the High School Writing Contest:

Waldorf Regional High School Writing Contest: In 2014, Waldorf College initiated an annual high school writing contest in the North Iowa region. Seniors were given the opportunity to win cash prizes in two categories–poetry and prose–and first-place winners were offered Waldorf College scholarships.

This contest now extends to Juniors, Sophomores, and Freshmen, who have been invited to submit their creative writing by a separate deadline. All participants who are not at the Senior level will make a visit to the Waldorf campus for a one-day workshop in late spring, where cash prizes will be offered along with certificates for participation.


High School Writing Contest First Place Winner, Noah Johnson, heads his prose piece, “War Time” at the 2014 Waldorf Literary Review Release Party.
