Join in the Lisbon Elementary 16th Annual Young Authors’ Contest! Maryland students in grades 2 through 5 are eligible to enter an original short story and/or poem. First place and Honorable Mention winners will be selected for each grade, and our 1st place winners will go on to be judged at the county and possibly the state level. Each entry may have only one author. A cover sheet, signed by a parent and teacher, is needed for each entry. Both the entry and cover sheet should be saved as a Word document, typed in either Times Roman or Comic Sans 12- point font. Please include your name on the cover sheet not the entry.
