Throughout the school year the Oak Bay English Department hosts a number of writing contests. This space will honour each month’s 3 finalists and highlight the criteria for each contest. Thank you to all writer’s for your submissions!
Our latest English Department Writing Contest challenged participants to compose a “Twitter-sized” narrative. Twitter, a powerful social media platform, limits tweets to 140 characters. Writers needed to pen a compelling piece under this limitation. Here are our finalists and congrats to all who participated!
The below finalists were recognized in the 300 word short story contest. Students used a visual prompt to guide them into their story and were challenged to create an engaging and meaningful narrative in no more than 300 words. Congratulations to Chloe, Sarah, and Kyla!
