The National Council of Teachers of English and the Promising Young Writers Advisory Committee expresses their appreciation to all who took part in the 2014 Promising Young Writers program.
This year, 171 students were nominated. Of that number, 39 received Certificates of Recognition and 132 received Certificates of Participation. Each student submitted two pieces of writing, which were read by national judges. Papers were judged on content, purpose, audience, tone, word choice, organization, development, and style.
Letters announcing results were mailed to teachers April 21, 2014.
