Literary Competition Guidelines
Students studying in Northwest Louisiana are encouraged to submit literary entries about the topics shown in the guidelines.
Middle School Guidelines
This year, the high school competition will be using the guidelines from Chapman University. Students are therefore able, and encouraged (though not required), to submit their entries to both the Chapman and the North Louisiana literary competitions. These guidelines and the differences between the two competitions are outlined by clicking the link below.
High School Guidelines
Unfortunately, we cannot accept submissions that do not adhere to these guidelines, that are submitted late, or that come from students outside the Northwest Louisiana area (Caddo, Bossier, Webster, and DeSoto parishes). Submissions will be retained by the Northwest Louisiana Jewish Federation, who will have the right to reprint winning entries in publications including local media/newspapers, or this website. Literary winners will be expected to attend the Holocaust Remembrance Service. Prizes are awarded at the discretion of the Shoah Committee. Some awards may not be given, depending on the number of entries received and evaluation of merit by the panel of judges.
