Yahara River Writers Anthology Project

The Yahara River Writers Anthology Project is a writing and cartooning contest for students in grades 5-8.   School districts/students must be a part of the Greater Dane County Advanced Learners Network to participate.  All participating districts are expected to help with various aspects of the Yahara Project as assigned.  Students may enter ONE piece in any ONE of these categories: Cartoons, Editorials, Poetry, Short Stories or one Cover or Divider Page.

We are excited to announce that this school year (2017-2018) the Yahara Writing Contest will be accepting poetry in Spanish in addition to English entries for grades 5-8.  This will be a separate subcategory with its own top ten and top two this year.  We hope to add additional categories and language options in the future.
