Letters were mailed to all student participants and recognition certificates were mailed to school principals on September 20, 2011.
A total of 543 students were selected as outstanding writers in the 2011 NCTE Achievement Awards in Writing. The recipients were chosen from 1,649 students nominated in their junior year by their teachers, from the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Canada, the Virgin Islands, and American schools abroad. The number of nominees from each school is based on the school’s total enrollment in grades ten through twelve: one nominee per 500 students. The number of winners from each state is determined by doubling the number of the state’s representatives in Congress. A state may fall below its designated number of winners if there are fewer outstanding entries than the state is allowed.
